Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch has died at the age of 47, his publicist has confirmed, the star was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 but it is not clear whether his death was connected with the illness. Yauch had surgery and radiation therapy but said last year “reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated”. Under the alias MCA, he joined the group co-founded by Mike D and Ad Roc in 1981. They went on to sell more than 40 million albums worldwide. I would like to pass on my condolences to his family and all those that were close to him. R.I.P Adam Yauch!!
As a tribute I thought I’d post a couple of my favourite Beastie Boys songs.
