Beastie Boys’ Mike D starts wine reviewing blog

Mike D: Beastie Boy. Skilled remixer. Wine connoisseur?

As The Daily Swarm points out, Mr. Mike Diamond has given up his Brass Monkey for the sweet aromas of wine, which he’ll discuss on “Mike D’s Blog”, an exclusive feature at wine critic James Suckling’s new website, You can check out his first entry here, in which he calls a half-bottle of 1er Cru Burgundy “surprisingly ready to rock — ripe fruits, earthy notes, even a little bit of refined funk…”

Between this and a certain creme brulee blog we’ve recently bookmarked, we’re not sure which artists will turn to fine cuisine critiquing next.

Any takers on Arcade Fire reviewing New Mexican cuisine?
