a lot of these stories and anecdotes have been out there for years, but it will be interesting to see them all together and get a sense of all the different perspectives.
1) Yup. I just want to read the EPMD stuff.
 hahah - yep the ep stuff alone should be enough to fill a book!
 meant the e, not ep.
Wow. The Beasties nearly became these guys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mCYSGWSQsM
I feel like the Oral History style that the GQ article is in (and the ESPN book, and "the National" oral history for Grantland, and I'm sure some others) is gaining popularity in the writing world. Or did I just miss it for a long time?
Great stuff, thank you!
this was great, what a fun little moment in time...wish I coulda seen it
I see more and more oral history too.
I've been toying with the idea of doing an oral history in the next year, I won't say of what but I feel confident I can get people to sit and talk on it. I really think it's a great format when used properly.
