Mister D: For 15 years I managed record stores, and during that time the Beastie Boys were huge. I wasn’t very much into rap ever, but my employees were and one thing you could guarantee…on any given day The Beastie Boys and Bette Midler would be playing. They were a group that got better and better with each new album and making end of the year Best Music lists. Somehow, I can’t see many of you listening to their records nor Bette Midler telling their story, but you’re missing out. I was really ecstatic that Bette was participating in this. I need to contact some of my old employees. They’d get a kick out of this.

Beastie Boys Audio Book to Be Narrated by Bette Midler, Ben Stiller, Snoop Dogg, And Many More
By JEM ASWAD
October 26, 2018
Mister D: I was really surprised at how eclectic the star fans were with this group. I waited such a long time for something like this to happen The Beasties were great and I hope this is contnuous.
The “Beastie Boys Book,” a sprawling and detailed 600-page history of the group that comes out on Oct. 30, has an impressive and characteristically diverse roster of guest narrators for its audio edition: Snoop Dogg, Elvis Costello, Steve Buscemi, Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart, Will Ferrell, Wanda Sykes, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Chloë Sevigny, Ben Stiller, Rev Run, New York 1 anchor Pat Kiernan, Pulp singer Jarvis Cocker, Kim Gordon, Spike Jonze, original Beasties drummer Kate Schellenbach and many more, including the group’s two surviving members, Mike Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz.
The pair will embark on an unusual book tour — with readings, Q&A sessions, an exhibit and a live score by Mix Master Mike — next week.

The Village Voice
December 13, 1973
IT IS NOT SO MUCH that Bette Midler‘s appearance at the Palace Theatre has made her a Broadway star as it is that she has brought stardom back to Broadway. Tacky she is, but tacky with a splendid sense of grandeur. Why, even her nervousness on Opening Night, manifested in a missed note or a wrong tempo, befit the occasion, for this was an audience, mostly invited, composed of the Beautiful and Famous from rock and theatre worlds alike. For them, she would have to be at her tackiest, even more so than in Portland or Passaic. Needless to say, she succeeded marvelously.

Of all the award categories devised by the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences, none is a less reliable gauge of talent than the Grammy for best new artist. Faster than you can say “one-hit wonder,” a host of winners have become no-hit stumblers.
Are you out there, Bobbie Gentry, Men at Work, Debby Boone and Mark Cohn? (See Timeline on Page 3.)
But even if this year’s best new artist nominees enjoy only a brief stay in the commercial sun – which seems unlikely, particularly for rockers Alanis Morissette and Joan Osborne – the women who dominate the category still will have contributed to one of Grammy’s most compelling statements.

EXCLUSIVE: Trudie Styler will produce and direct the film adaptation of James St. James best-seller Freak Show which already has Bette Midler, AnnaSophia Robb, Ian Nelson and Lorraine Toussaint on board. The film is in pre-production and is expected to roll before the cameras at monthâ€™s end. The lead role has not yet been set â€¦ wish we were a fly on the wall for that casting session. Would be fun.

HBOâ€™s Rock Hall of Fame induction wheels along despite the no-show by Axl Rose
Top performers include Billy Joe Armstrong, Bette Midler and the Beastie Boys
Friday, May 4, 2012, 8:00 AM
The annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies never have and probably never will lend themselves to being a perfect TV package.
That doesnâ€™t mean the edited version airing Saturday on HBO doesnâ€™t have its fun moments.
Those who equate rock â€™nâ€™ roll with shouting 12-letter words at the audience will be hooked from the beginning, when Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day starts the show by doing just that.

When music legends both young(ish) and very old gather together, you know youâ€™ll be in for a good show.
HBOâ€™s â€œ2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,â€ airing tomorrow night at 9, is a perfect example of that. Here are five of our favorite inductee tributes and performances from the show:
Decked out in old-school, green Adidas track suits, Rock, McCoy and the Roots put on a rip-roaring, medley of the Beastie Boysâ€™ most recognizable hits â€œNo Sleep Till Brooklyn,â€ â€œSo Whatâ€™cha Want,â€ â€œSabotageâ€ and â€œThe New Style.â€ Beastie collaborator Mix Master Mike represented the group onstage, too. (The Beasties themselves didnâ€™t perform because Adam Yauch, who is battling cancer couldnâ€™t make it to the ceremony.)

Rock Hall Show a Bust As Group Recycles Itself
04/15/12 Roger Friedman
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame annual induction show used to be a big deal. Remember the Waldorf Hotel big jam sessions with names like Springsteen, McCartney, Jagger, Richards, etc? Am I showing my age? Yes. because thatâ€™s when it was a Hall of Fame. Now reduced to rubble, the Hall of Fame showâ€“held in Cleveland this yearâ€“was a shadow of its former self. No-shows due to illness were Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys and Rod Stewart of the Faces/Small Faces, although Rodâ€™s already in as a solo act. Axl Rose protested the event, so Guns n Roses played without him.
