R.I.P. MCA

It's no secret that I love the Beastie Boys. It was with great sadness that I heard about the death of Adam Yauch aka MCA on Friday.

The AV Club has written a fantastic article about him. There are many other great articles to be found, for sure. I'd love for you to share them in the comments.

From the AV Club article:
Yauch’s life and career are a testament to the possibilities of emotional, creative, and artistic growth. A man who rose to fame peddling a proudly obnoxious form of adolescent nihilism grew up to be a man whose life and career were defined by idealism and integrity. Adam Yauch wanted to make the world a more compassionate, loving, and funky place. He succeeded. The world is poorer for his loss but richer for the contributions he made.- Nathan Rabin

  1. I'm so glad you posted this Lisa. I was so upset to hear the news yesterday about MCA. I've been lucky enough to have seen them twice in concert over the years but I really thought that The Beastie Boys had the potential to be around forever. That band and their music is interwoven into so many of my memories. It's like how I felt when I heard John Hughes had died, like some of my childhood has died alongside them :(

  2. The very second I heard this I thought about you.

    I love that so much.

    Also, I was tearful. I love the Beasties. He was too young and it was an unfair way to go. He left a family, a hell of a legacy, and a hell of a discography. RIP.
