I never told this story here but this seems like a good a time as any. On Oct. 6, 2004 my older brother Chris (who was my motherfucking hero growing up) lost his battle with brain cancer. On Oct. 9 we laid him to rest on Long Island. I had purchased tickets to see the Beasties at the Garden on Oct. 9 months earlier but obviously wasn't going that night so that I could sit with my family. At around 4PM my best friend came by and said "let's go..." and my family urged me to go as they thought it might make me feel better. So, loaded up on xanax and beer my buddy drove to my apartment down in the Village and we took the train up to 34th st.

I still remember getting a chill when we entered the Garden to the sounds of Sure Shot. It's one thing to see a Beasties show but at the GARDEN? It doesn't get better than that. You all know that the crowd was filming a movie that night and I have a souvenir to always remind me of that snap shot. It is hard to watch the movie but I remember dancing in place and feeling so great and so miserable at the same time. It still makes me feel better and I have no regrets attending the show. Chris would have wanted me to carry on with my plans.

Anyway, sorry to ramble, I am very sad that Adam is gone. I'm sure that mine is just one of thousands of stories where the band brought joy to their fans even in the toughest of situations. R.I.P. Adam

oh did i mention FUCK CANCER



"MCA, where have you been?"

In our hearts, and he always will be.

I felt the same way and I two was just ignoring it.

Also to the person who admitting to crying today, I'm right there with you. I went to get a beer to try and heal and I kept swelling up at the pub.

Bad shit. It's trite to frame this in relation to myself, but what the Boys gave to me cannot be underestimated. I have so much to thank them for in the route I have taken in life and MCA was a massive part of that. I was lucky enough to meet him once for an interview and whilst many of your heroes turn out to be dicks in real life, all three of the Beastie Boys were a proper good laugh. He will be missed.



Brap!

Good Times Gone And You Missed Them

Whatís Gone Wrong In Your System

Things They Bounce Just Like A Spalding

Whatíd You Think Did You Miss Your Calling

Itís So Free This Kind Of Feeling

Itís Like Life Itís So Appealing

When Youíve Got So Much To Say

Itís Called Gratitude, And Thatís Right




Good Times Gone But You Feed It

Hateís Grown Strong You Feel You Need It

Just One Thing Do You Know

What You Think That The World Owes You

Whatís Gonna Set You Free

Look Inside And Youíll See

When Youíve Got So Much To Say

Itís Called Gratitude, And Thatís Right



Thats insane, you're stupid...you should sleep late man, it's just much easier on your constitution.

quite choked up at the moment...

i wanted so bad to tell adam this but never could for obvious reasons... here goes..


adam,

i never had a male role model in my life. was a fan before you took interest in buddhism and when i found out what you were into, i wanted to see what it was all about. i was probably about 19 or 20 at the time and i ended up reading so many different books on buddhism and visited quite a few temples around the nation, thai, chinese, and others. i guess what im trying to say is....you made me want to be a better person, for myself and for those around me. although we only shook hands briefly once, youll always be missed by myself and countless others. thank you for the positive changes you helped make happen in my life and for just...everything.



its about time

I really hope it's not just FFYR ... Adam made so many more amazing things.

Unhappy Re: TMZ : "YAUCH DEAD"

I'm at a loss for words... Feeling numb-ish... I can't even begin to imagine how Adam and Mike must feel, not to mention his family... Big hugs to the bbmb community. Ugh wow. I wish we could all just wake from this nightmare...

It was 9 pm here when they aired "Non Stop Disco Powerpack" on a lame pop radio station. I was like: oooh, the Beasties! Then I got a text from my sister...

I sincerely feel like I have lost a close relative today. Someone wrote here: you only realize it, when someone's gone.

And apparently BB music has been and will always be a huge part of what I am. Lifelong gratitude for that, dear MCA.

So sad today. The Beasties have been a huge part of my life since I bought Licence to Ill aged six. Often looked on here to see if there was good news about Adam's health, but sadly it's not to be. At least we'll always have the wonderful music. RIP Adam Yauch - we love you man.

I remember when he was diagnosed in 2009 and they had to cancel tour dates that he apologized to people that had made plans to come see them. I was blown away that anybody could be so selfless. That's about all you need to know to understand what type of guy he was!

cancer is no joke. my mother passed away from three forms of cancer and I can only imagine what MCA had to endure as well as adrock, mike d and thier friends and family. I seriously feel like crying like I did when I lost my mother.

i heard the news at work today and went into the bathroom to cry for a while,this is the biggest loss to me ever.he was such an amazing human and just an all around fun guy. it got esspecially hard for me when i was on my way home crying when i get a text from my son who is 11 and a huge beastie fan,saying that they were playing the boys on the radio on his school bus,not knowing that he had passed when he came home and saw me in the bed crying and i told him he gave me a huge hug and told me that Adam was in heaven now and not suffering anymore. I WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU MCA,THANKS FOR ALL THE AMAZING WORK YOUVE DONE.

here's a little bit to add to the beastie's lore...

saw this as a comment on TMZ (of all places) just now:

His father had been a "frustrated painter" he said and it seemed to me at the time that Adam was doing this as a bit of a tribute to his father. Of the 3 guys Adam was the one who came by the studio periodically to see how the paintings were coming, the other two seemed to have little interest. Adam had loved the work of painter LeRoy Neiman and brought in a big "coffee table book" of his paintings to inspire us. That was all Adam's doing. I must give him full credit for bringing us a cool art project to work on. I will remember him fondly and today I am sad.

i don't even know what to say right now; what to post... just stunned. if there was anyone i never actually knew who taught me to be tolerable of other peoples; religion, race, sexuality etc.. it was him. if it weren't for him and the rest of the boys, i'd be a far worse and narrow-minded individual.

rest in peace, adam yauch. lot's of love and condolences from perth for your family, brother.
