No More Beastie Boys

It is a sad, sad day. We lost Adam Yauch, aka MCA of the Beastie Boys. He lost his battle with cancer at the young age of 47. First it was Michael Jackson, then Whitney Houston, and now MCA of the Beastie Boys. All musicians I listened to growing up. I listened to Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston in middle school and the Beastie Boys in high school. But I continued listening to the Beastie Boys in college and after. I was lucky enough to see the Beastie Boys perform live a few times in the 1990s at Lollapalooza and Tibetan Freedom Festivals, and I saw them one last time in 2008 at the Virgin Mobile Festival – on the front rail. My favorite song of the Beastie Boys is Hold It Now, Hit It.


Now that I am almost 40, musicians of my generation are dying and it makes me pause, think and reflect.
