Gutted to hear that the Beastie Boys Adam Yauch aka MCA passed away last night. Grew up listening to the Beasties, and when I did eventually get to catch them live at Wembley Arena a few years back, it was one of the best live gigs I’ve ever been to. I knew Yauch had been fighting cancer, but I guess thought he was through the worst of it as I hadn’t seen any updates for a while. He also directed most of the group’s videos under the alias Nathaniel Hornblower. RIP MCA.
