(Undated)  —  It turns out Adam Yauch went to great lengths to keep his music out of any new commercials.  “Rolling Stone” reports the late Beastie Boy’s will was filed on Tuesday in New York City, and the document specifically prohibits his image, music, or “any artistic property” he created from being used for advertising purposes.  The magazine also points out that the part about Yauch’s music and artistic property was added in handwriting.  Meanwhile, the will names Adam’s wife, Dechen, as the executor of his estate.  It also leaves her and the couple’s daughter, Tenzin Losel, his six-point-four-million dollars.  Yauch died back in May after a three-year battle with cancer.  He was 47.
