Sad News: Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys Has Passed Away

4 May

Sad to report that Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys has passed away at age 47 due to cancer.

The complete story is on Pitchfork who writes it much better than I could.

I grew up listening to the Beastie Boys – to the point where I knew every word to pretty much every song.  They were a seminal rock / rap group always pushing boundaries in their music, their videos, their concerts and their lives. This was one group where I had all their cassettes, all the CDs and all the records. I’m happy to have seen them live in concert – the last time being their big tour with A Tribe Called Quest.

Not much more can be said so I’ll leave you with some Beastie Boys music videos.
