Adam Keefe Horowitz was born in South Orange, New Jersey. Since his childhood, he has suffered from epilepsy.

Throughout his music career, he has worked as a guitarist, actor, singer and musician. Altogether, his net worth is at $75 million. His first band was actually known by the name of the Young and the Useless. Although this band performed with the Beastie Boys, Horowitz did not actually switch bands until the guitarist for the Beastie Boys ended up quitting. At the age of 16, Horowitz joined the new band and helped the band members to change their sound. Instead of hardcore punk music, the band began to play songs that sounded more like hip hop. This new sound led to an increased commercial success.
