Adam Horovitz Confirms Beastie Boys Status & Reveals What Life Is Like Now

The Beastie Boys indeed ended when Adam Yauch died of cancer a few years ago.
His bandmate Adam Horovitz confirmed this status, although it's already been well known, saying to GQ, "We're done. Oh Yeah. Adam Yauch started the band. It's not like a thing where we could continue without him. Adam was one of my best friends; I saw him more than I saw my whole family. You know, me, Adam, and Mike were together every day, recording, touring, as friends. And so: huge hole."
Totally understood. Without Adam Yauch, or without Ad-Rock or Mike Diamond, there are no Beastie Boys.
They were like brothers.
Horovitz, who is married to Bikini Kill-er Kathleen Hanna, stars in While We're Young, in which he plays a square Brooklyn dad. That's not his public persona, but it's almost indicative of his life, which changed and stopped, to a degree, since he was a Beastie Boy for so long.
"It's not that I am not happy where I'm at," he explained. "I just feel like something else has to happen next, because I was this person for so long, and I'm still that person, but, like, the thing is gone. So I need a thing."
Again, totally understandable. He went through a life shock when MCA died.
