Seems like way to many musicians are dying lately....

RIP MCA of the Beastie Boys....I grew up with their music. I am pretty bummed out right now. 47 years old. Sad day in the music world yet again.

DAMN that big C...RIP

Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, aka MCA, has passed away at age 47. He was diagnosed with cancer of his salivary gland in 2009.

A vocalist and bass player, Yauch co-founded the group in 1979 along with “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horowitz. Their music was an innovative hybrid of hardcore punk and hip-hop. Albums like Licensed to Ill, Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head cemented their place among the most popular acts of the last 25 years. They reportedly sold more than 20 million albums domestically and 4o million worldwide.

Yauch directed many of the band’s videos under the pseudonym Nathaniel Hornblower. He was also the co-founder of the Milarepa Fund, which supported the Tibetan Independence movement and put on a series of benefit concerts for the cause.

The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month, but Yauch was unable to attend, and his band mates declined to perform without him. The band had also cancelled a tour and delayed the release of their album Hot Sauce Committee while Yauch fought the disease.

He is survived by his wife, Dechen Wangdu and their 13-year-old daughter, Tenzin Losel Yauch.

Yeah and it's a job I truly don't want..this one has really gotten me shook up. There are only a handful of bands that I can remember being blown away first time hearing their music and the Beastie boys were one of those bands. Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique are two albums that will always have a special place in my heart and soul. I might hve to stop at the liquor store and buy an honorary 40 ounce. I don't even remember the last time I bought or drank a 40, probably back in the day while listening to them on a street corner.:) Good times, good memories.....thank you MCA.

They broke out when I was in college. The parties would always have them jammin. And something new and fresh like they were at the time. Would set off insanity at them.
Its a shame. But I guess the best thing is he didnt just use his fame to be greedy like 99% do today. BBs went around the world helping alot of people and causes. The way it should be done when you build a name that big.
