"He had us fooled in the most beautiful way," Michael Diamond said of Adam Yauch, his friend and fellow Beastie Boy for more than 30 years, describing the latter's "incredible optimism" during his three-year battle with cancer. "I believed, up to last week, that Adam was somehow coming back," Diamond confessed, in a long, frank interview after Yauch's death on May 4th. "But I wouldn't trade that optimism for anything," he added quickly, sitting in the kitchen of his Brooklyn home, only six blocks from the house where Yauch grew up. "Because  the other option is no fun."
