R.I.P. MCA (Adam Yauch) of the Beastie Boys
I can't imagine a world where there is not a new Beastie Boys album to look forward to. It's all I've known my whole life. I think the first cassette tape I ever owned was "License to Ill" back in the mid 1980s. The last time they were here in the Bay Area for a show I bought tickets, but they had to cancel because MCA was diagnosed with throat cancer. I was sad then, and I am sad now.
Rest in Peace, MCA: you did a lot for world peace and worthy causes and you most definitely earned your license to ill ... forever.
Here's probably the greatest music video of all time. Thanks again, MCA.
