So very sad. Adam was a true artist, a peaceful guy and he´ll be sorely missed. The Beastie Boys were so key in my musical life, I cannot believe there´s Adam missing.
All our hearts go to his wife and daughter. Rest in peace Adam.

There´s no video....but just listen to MCA´s voice in this beautiful and sweet song. Three minutes of beauty to remember him by.

Sad news today. He was special. I saw the Beasties around the time of Ill Communication. May choirs of angels sing him to rest.

Very sad news indeed. I think the strength of outpouring on social media etc in the last day reflects the influence that the Beasties had on many people and music lovers over the years.

This piece in the New Yorker last night was a moving tribute.

Gotta also mention Oscilloscope Labs that Adam founded which produced and shepherded many interesting and wonderful films in recent years including We Need To Talk About Kevin, Exit Through The Gift Shop and work by Kelly Reichardt and Andrea Arnold.

so sad I grew up in the 90s hearing my dad play them, and my brother and I fell in love with their sound. He wasn't old at all which makes this even more heartbreaking

The Beastie Boys (along with RUN D.M.C. and LL Cool J) were one of the true pioneers of early Hip Hip--during a time when Hip Hop was still considered partially Rock.
