El viernes os contábamos, con tristeza, la noticia sobre Adam Yauch , integrante de los Beasty Boys que nos dejaba a los 47 años de edad víctima de un cáncer con el que había estado luchando durante algún tiempo. Dando la vuelta al mundo, las reacciones de medios y músicos no se hicieron esperar, y eran muchos los que comentaban a través de Twitter y daban su despedida personal a Adam. Las reacciones siguen notándose a día de hoy, y Coldplay, como uno de los grupos más importantes de la actualidad, daba su [...]
Beastie Boys filmed an unreleased musical performance of "The New Style" for the aborted 3rd season of "Chappelle's Show" in late fall 2004. It was on a boat in the East River, NYC. R.I.P. Adam "MCA" Yauch!!!
Punk-angst with some of the best structured songs to come out of the 80's, Licensed To Ill is what happens when you take a visionary like Rick Rubin (hate him or love him, the man is still a genius) and put him in a room with three kids out of New York who were hungry, talented, and ready to make an artistic change.
Adam "MCA" Yauch (1964-2012) Hey folks, as I'm sure you've heard by now Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys passed away on Friday of last week at the age of 47. I was shocked and saddened to hear the news, 47 is just too damn young, no matter who you are. Though I hadn't been a fervent fan throughout their career, I've enjoyed the Beastie's music and I respect their accomplishments as a band. I certainly remember the dawning of MTV and what a huge impact "Fight For [...]
Neal Brennan, Co-creator Chappelle's Show, released this never before seen performance of the Beastie Boys unreleased musical performance of "The New Style" for the aborted 3rd season of "Chappelle's Show." The performance was recorded on a boat in the East River, NYC in late fall, 2004. It's pretty damn Beastie. Rest in Peace, Adam Yauch VIA
Beastie Boys was always a tricky act for me to follow. On one hand, Licensed to Ill (1986) defined my later high-school experience. It was a massive, band-breaking album, but for Beastie Boys, not quite definitive. Musically, it's primitive, a time-capsule effort that's representative of its era but hardly representative of Beastie Boys. It barely hinted at the sophisticated direction the trio would take with its follow-up, Paul's Boutique (1989), which, more than anything, set the dominant tone of the Brooklynites' discography. Beastie Boys was the first white rap act to go platinum, [...]

MCA had nothing to prove Adam Yauch always seemed like the coolest guy in the room. He did not resemble a hip hop icon. He was the punk rocker in the Beastie Boys' early days, a billy goat bearded snowboarder in the late eighties/early nineties, a Buddhist and social activist for the remainder of his career, and then a middle-aged hip hop godfather who left before the curtain dropped. Yauch and his mates, Mike Diamond and Adam Horowitz, could have packed [...]

As you'll no doubt have heard by now, on Friday 04 May 2012, Adam Yauch - aka MCA - from the Beastie Boys , died after losing his battle against cancer of the parotid salivary gland . He was just 47 years old. To mark this sad occasion, for this week's Sunday Spotify Slaylist we're looking back at the Beastie Boys' early, pre-hip hop punk rock material. While it's true that the Beastie Boys didn't find mainstream success until their game-changing Licensed To Ill , the band never forgot their punk [...]

HBO, which decided Friday (May 4) to dedicate the show to Yauch, made late revisions to the broadcast, ending it with a photo of the late MC and [...]
If you don’t connect with the Beastie Boy’s albums, you fall under one of two categories: 1. You are one of those people who proclaims loudly that you are in search of “high art,” while secretly you crank the volume when “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” comes on the radio. 2. You have no sense of rhythm whatsoever and words such as “inappropriate” escape your mouth on a regular basis. The Beastie’s music doesn’t need to sacrifice fun to make art and doesn’t need to sacrifice art to make fun. Now that this seemingly lighthearted, simple notion comes [...]

As we all know by now, Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys passed away yesterday at the age of 47. I'm working on a piece for next week, but I wanted to share this video that features the group's entire set from a 1999 concert in Glasgow. Enjoy. R.I.P. MCA.
Adam Yauch (1964-2012) with his beautiful daughter. Heartbreaking. In the wake of Levon Helm 's death, not to mention the suicide of Junior Seau , who was 6 months my senior and a fellow southern California boy, Adam Yauch 's sudden death at 47 hit me way harder than I could've possibly imagined. MCA was always the coolest Beastie ("cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce"), but the legacy of the Boys will be [...]
