Somebody said:
Adam "MC" Yauch, co-founder of Grammy-winners and recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees the Beastie Boys, has died at age 47. Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter. As of this writing, it is unclear if his death is related to the cancer he was treated for in 2009.


I knew he had cancer, but I thought he was over it for a while now. Sad to hear him go.

Apparently there were rumors he was over it but they weren't true.

Man, I always considered "Professor Booty" my theme song for the obvious reasons!
PS: Moved thread to Gen. Chat, because it's important.
PS: I always liked the Beastie Boys, but Licensed To Ill really blew my mind as a kid, especially since I'd never heard the songs being sampled. "Rhymin' and Stealin'" just totally destroyed me - those drums. Sure, it's the drums from "When The Levee Breaks" but that doesn't make the song any less amazing.

I am really sad to hear this news, I also thought he was in recovery from his illness. I have many good memories of my band geeks days when I hear Beastie Boys music!

Incredibly sad news. The Beastie Boys are the band I've loved the most consistently for the longest time, and though they had ups and downs, I don't think they've put out anything that any other band wouldn't be proud to have in their catalogue. MCA was my favorite member, insofar as I can declare one without getting into "clipping his photo out of Tiger Beat" territory. A truly inspiring guy.

Really saddened by this. I think I'm actually more upset than when I found out Lesley Nielsen died.

I think they were the first band I really got into. I remember when Hello Nasty dropped; that was the anthem for my summer back in '98...
And before that came out I remember buying Ill Communication back when I was about 12 and thinking I was a huge bad ass.

I'm still unreasonably sad about this, even though I never owned more than License to Ill and a few of their singles. Beasties were what put me on the path to what I listen to today when the older kids would take over the stereo in ceramics class in middle school. I never knew much about them or MCA, but he sounded like such a standup guy. I'm sad he passed so young and had to leave his wife and young daughter.
