Last week, Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Bestie Boys passed away after a three year battle with cancer. He was 47 years old.
I was never a rabid Beastie Boys devotee, but they made such a HUGE musical impact over the course of their career, even a casual fan like myself can't help but stumble over the news of MCA's passing.
I've been listening to a lot of Beastie Boys online this weekend. Lots of memories/nostalgia washing over me. I'm sharing their video for "Intergalatic" today. Takes me back to 1998, sitting at the lunch tables in 8th grade with my friends looking through the CD booklet for Hello Nasty. Not only is this probably my favorite Beastie Boys song, but MCA directed the video himself.
R.I.P. sir. You will be missed.
