money mark and mario c were the secret weapons of the Beastie Boys post Pauls Boutique
the boys (and their lawyers) didnt want to pay out the exorbitant fees required when using samples
so they had to pick up their own instruments and play.
the boys were good, but could use help
mario c was a great producer and percussionist and he knew money mark who played keyboards
the other day i interviewed Mark and he was so cool, so chill, so open to talking about anything
it was a delight
then i had him sign one of my Beastie Boys posters and he was gracious about that too.
