The Beastie Boys were faaaaaar better than they get credit for and Adam was a bass monster. So many stylistic and sonic variations inside every single album! I have Check Your Head on tonight. My daughter (16) pops her head in and says "Is that the Beastie Boys?" Like she can't believe her old man is still a little cool. Anyway, discuss... When I was young I never had any curiosity about his gear or technique. Someone here must know.
