    Very sad news. Love their music and the videos they put out. Hard to believe they once opened for Madonna.

    Just heard. I knew he had cancer but it still came as a shock. I saw them at Lollapalooza back in the 90s. Best show ever. Check your Head and Paul's Boutique are still 2 of my favorite albums.

    RIP MCA

    "Pass me the scalpel, I'll make an incision
    I'll cut off the part of your brain that does the *
    Put it in formaldehyde and put it on the shelf
    And you can show it to your friends and say that's my old self"

    "I want to say a little something that's long overdue
    The disrespect to women has got to be through
    To all the mothers and sisters and the wives and friends
    I want to offer my love and respect to the end"

    "If you can feel what I'm feeling then it's a musical masterpiece
    If you can hear what I'm dealing with then that's cool at least
    What's running through my mind comes through in my walk
    True feelings are shown from the way that I talk"

    Heard the news on the radio coming back from watching The Avengers. Really bummed. His parts in Beastie songs were always my favorite. RIP Adam

    No sleep 'till Brooklyn. :(


    Just heard the news. Really sad to hear this as MCA was my favourite of the Beastie Boys. I remember when they performed "Fight for your Right" on the Joan Rivers Show in 1987 (86?). *. He was only 47.

    "Sabotage" is easily my favourite BB song and video.

    Rest in peace Adam.
