R.I.P. To Another Legend

Sad but true, we've lost another legend in the world of music. This one was a genius of a different kind. Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys died this morning (April 4th) from cancer of the Salivary Gland. Adam found out he had throat cancer in 2009. Since then he has been increasingly scarce from major events, tours etc. Even just a month ago the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Adam was missing from the induction. Just the third rap group ever in history to make it into the H.O.F. it's unfortunate that MCA passed just a month after the ceremony. For once, an artist had a chance to be alive to see such an award. Yauch was only 47 years young and founded the group in high school in 1979 as a punk band. They eventually morphed into one of the most respected and loved groups period. He was a very talented artist and director often directing the groups videos under the alias Nathaniel Hornblower. His interest in video led to him starting his own production company, Oscilloscope Laboratories, and shooting several documentaries. He will be missed here but respected eternally. R.I.P. Adam Yauch.
