Of course by now everyone would be aware of the very sad passing of The Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch aka MCA. We really should have put together some kind of big commemorative post ourselves but the truth is we’re bummed, you’re bummed, we’re all bummed. It’s sad to see someone so talented that we’ve enjoyed all of our lives die so young. Let’s not exploit the situation.
Mike D made a comment today on behalf of the group via their facebook page which I found honest and touching…
“I know, we should have tweeted and instagrammed every sad, happy and inspired thought, smile or tear by now. But honestly the last few days have just been a blur of deep emotions for our closest friend, band mate and really brother. I miss Adam so much. He really served as a great example for myself and so many of what determination, faith, focus, and humility coupled with a sense of humor can accomplish. The world is in need of many more like him. We love you Adam. BTW this photo sent to me by a friend, (thanks Saslow) is just one awesome example of how NYC is such a unique place that amidst it’s huge size and frenetic pace it really opens up it’s heart in so many ways and on on so many levels in times like these. And though it makes me cry sometimes, it has been really amazing and moving to see. Mike.”
Andddd I think we’re all sufficiently sad now :(
RIP MCA. You will be missed.
