What’s Hot on TV Tonight – Beastie Boys in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction was actually filmed a month ago, yet it’s a little chilling that it is now airing on HBO just a few days after the death of Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys. He didn’t make the ceremony then because they said he was “in treatment,” but it’s obvious now that it was because he was far too ill with cancer. RIP Adam.
