Unbelievable...

Thought things might not be going well when he didn't attend the RNRHOF induction but was hoping it was just a blip in his treatment...

Will miss so much about him --- the sense of humor that shone through the lyrics and videos, the voice that made me love Beastie Boys, the generosity of his time spent on these boards, his innovation with oscilloscope, the brilliance of the music and sampling...

Thoughts and prayers to his family and everyone he touched with his music and his kindness...

I'll really miss you...

I haven't been able to really think of the right words to say with so many emotions running through me right now. Instead of making it about me and rambling on incoherently I just want to say my heart and my prayers go out to Dechen, Losel, Mike and Horovitz and everybody so close to him. If it's hard on us I can't imagine the pain and sadness they are feeling. Mike and Adam stay strong for Yauch. We are here for you!

As sad as it is to lose Adam, I know I will continue listening to the Beastie Boys for the rest of my life so he'll always be there.

this is an awful day for beastie boys fans. prayers of peace and comfort to his bandmates Mike and Adam, and to his wife and daughter.

it's almost like a chapter of my life is over.

rambling post to follow later tonight, but I am thankful for all the friends that this community, a community of die hard fans, has brought me.

and I'm sorry to all the people I was a dick to.

The man was just so damn nice, he gave me a B-Day Shout-out @ Red Rocks, the name Burger Boy and a few hours of his time.

There will be no more shows, no more shirts, no more one night trips to Vegas or last minute flights to Amsterdam. He was a great person, music was just a platform for all the good things he did. RIP MCA

Prayers to everyone Yauch has touched.
He was the older brother I never had.
Thank you for shaping my life since 86.
Yauch was always one step ahead. When everyone was smoking that chronic, Yauch was rhyming about how not smoking weed was helpful to his journey. He taught me to have confidence in myself and not follow others to keep up with the joneses.
I had the pleasure of shaking Yauch's hand at the Grand Royal Record party at Irving Plaza in the 90s. I got to mumble something to him about his inspiration in my life. Thank you for that.
Heavy day - it does make me feel better knowing so many others out there feel the same way I do.
Rest well Adam.

I am trying to stay strong at work right now, but I feel like I am going to crack.

My facebook feed is full of tributes. It's great to see respect and gratitude going our worldwide right now.

Yeah, it's great to see just how many people love him and love the band. You never really know how much someone meant to you until they're gone.

The worst news ever. I am totally gutted.

RIP to a humanitarian, musical genius, legend, icon, father, husband and friend.

I just cant.

Oh man... After hours I still can't realise it happened.
I feel like I've lost my elder brother.
RIP Adam

Re: TMZ : "YAUCH DEAD"
 
As I wrote my post above I started crying and its because like some others have said I realized how Adam shaped the person I am. How he changed so many peoples lives, including mine.

I'm speechless.
Rest in peace. You have been of great inspiration to me, and always will be.

The Hall of Fame airs tomorrow on HBO. That speech by Yauch is going to be even sadder to hear now.

I wonder if he knew he was dying when he wrote the speech.

RIP MCA, beasties music will be to my kids what my parent's beetles music was to me growing up.

Re: TMZ : "YAUCH DEAD"
 
I do not really post on here despite being a member, I am however a contsant reader.

I just do not know how to express my sadness. The boys have been a part of my life since I was 13 years of age and losing Adam Yauch is like losing a family member. The amount of pleasure I have got from their music is immeasurable.

I was so sure after seeing videos of the guys fooling around dressed as old men and seeing the cover of "The Sounds Of Science", that we would get to see all three grow old together, still friends (and hopefully still musicians) after all those years.

When I think back to the times I have seen them live - in person, or footage of them - they always had so much FUN and it was infectious. Goofing around, making each other laugh, making the crowd smile and have a blast, just to know that is over is heartbreaking.

Adam was a gentle soul, that much is obvious and it just seems to make this news all the more sad. So to Adam H and Mike D, my thoughts are with you, you lost a brother and we lost an icon. To Adam Yauchs' family I am so sorry for your loss but please know that he was loved beyond measure by us the fans and he will never be forgotten.

MCA's gotta new name and that new name is LEGEND.

RIP Adam Yauch, AKA MCA - Cause You Know You're My Mellow. I love you, man.

I think he knew. If you listen to it he was saying most of it in past tense. I really tried to ignore what I was feeling and thinking that moment, but part of me knew it. I had a dream that he died last week but I kept it to myself thinking no you're just being negative.. be positive. be positive. :(

He certainly lived life to the fullest.
A real inspiration.

Re: TMZ : "YAUCH DEAD"
 
Just wanted to join everyone else in saying how deeply heartbroken I am by Yauch's passing... in the far corners of my mind I knew this day was probably going to happen sooner rather than later, especially after his non-appearance at the RRHOF, but I didn't want to face that actuality, and it doesn't make it any easier.

R.I.P. MCAdam Yauch

Greatly missed, but never forgotten!

Re: TMZ : "YAUCH DEAD"
 
It took all of your posts for me to realize how much of my musical taste / clothing style / lifestyle now was influenced by the Beastie Boys. It's sad to wonder what Adam and Mike will do without him, or if they'll do anything at all. Reading RIP MCA is like reading RIP Beastie Boys, because I just don't think they'd go at it without him.

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

R.I.P. Old friend. Thank You for the inspiration.

MCA - a huge inspiration for me... Beyond words... science and the stars. Damn. My thoughts to all those who feel the same and especially to those close to him. Peace to you Adam Yauch.
