Adam Yauch -- August 5, 1964 to May 4, 2012

Adam Yauch, better known as MCA of the Beastie Boys, died today at the age of 47. He had struggled with cancer since 2009.

MCA was one of the founding members of the Beastie Boys, which started as a hardcore punk band in 1979, and transitioned to hip-hop in 1984. They re-invented their sound many times over the years and have always remained relevant, thanks to his creative input and his collaboration with his friends.

I am very sad to hear of his early passing, and offer my condolences to his wife and young daughter.
