Very, very sad news this morning. The Global Grind has confirmed that Adam Yauch, better known as The Beastie Boys MCA, has succumbed to cancer and passed away at the age of 47. In 2009, Yauch was treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node and underwent surgery and radiation therapy. He is survived by his wife and daughter.
Let’s take 11 minutes and 9 seconds to remember him as the funny, creative and talented musician and artist that he was. R.I.P. MCA.
