Jeez. What awful news.
Adam “MCA” Yauch of the Beastie Boys has passed away at only 47 years of age, after battling cancer for the past few years.
Not much for me to say about this, other than I’m kind of stunned by it. I knew he was too unwell to attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony last month, when the Beastie Boys were inducted, but I guess I thought he was responding to treatment and not in danger of death. But cancer does whatever the fuck it wants, I guess.
He leaves a wife and a daughter behind. And he was nearly the same age as I am. I will keep them in my thoughts tonight, and I will be sure to give my husband an extra big hug when he gets home. You just never know.
