Adam Yauch
RIP MCA – Original image found at US Magazine

We lost a highly talented musician this last friday. Adam Yauch, who went by his moniker MCA, died at the age of 47 from cancer.

His music will be forever remembered by many as groundbreaking. Just weeks ago, the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [he did not attend due to his health], recognizing their talent and addition to the rap and hip-hop world.

And while I’m not that big of a Coldplay fan, their tribute to Adam just hours after his death was pure class.

Any favorite Beastie Boys song? Mine is “No Sleep ‘Till Brooklyn” which I’ve loved since I first heard it over 25 years ago.
