In a new interview with GQ, the Beastie Boys' Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz talked a little about his life with the retirement of the Beastie Boys, a group he co-fronted for more than three decades. First, he stated quite unambiguously that the band was done.
He continues to work on the memoir first mentioned in 2013 and featured prominently in The Punk Singer, the documentary about his wife Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre). Finally, the article notes his role in the new Noah Baumbach film, While We're Young, which just opened in the United States.

On Friday night, Off with Their Heads' show ended early with frontman Ryan Young leaving the stage mid-set. At this time, there doesn't appear to be footage of what happened, just a lot of contrasting stories. Generally, it seems that beer cans and bottles were thrown at Young. After Young was hit, he spit on the audience member claiming responsibility for throwing a bottle and then ended the show. You can read his statement after the jump.
