Adam Yauch: August 5, 1964 – May 4, 2012

As you’ve already most likely heard, Adam Yauch aka. MCA passed away on Friday, after a three year battle with cancer. I woke up to this news on Saturday and spent the majority of the day watching videos, reading tributes and sobbing like an idiot. I love the Beastie Boys, you love the Beastie Boys, there aren’t many that don’t, but his passing shocked the hell out of me and now I can comprehend how earlier generations felt when their musical heroes were taken away too early. I don’t really have adequate words to describe how much of a pioneer or awesome human being he was. So here is a bunch of stuff that provided a soundtrack to fun times in my life and made me happy.

    Terribly sad news. The Beastie Boys were one of the reasons I started listening to rap music, and seeing them live was a real gift – they had a presence and swagger unlike most live acts I’ve seen. He will be missed.
