MCA is Dead

Deepest reverence for MCA

The news today of Adam Yauch passing is still very fresh and surely all the details will come out about his battle with cancer--which will be difficult for many to hear.

His absence at the Rock Hall of Fame induction ceremony was sad and unwanted foreshadowing of what everyone knew was going to happened but avoided accepting it as a defense against the reality. 

There is no replacement MCA, and really, Ad-Rock and Mike D can only live to remember MCA's importance to the group.  In other words, there will never be another Beastie Boys. 

It really is the end of an era! 

The Beastie Boys were one of those bands where nobody had anything bad to say about.  They fit many interests, crossed cultural boundaries like no other group and allowed for complete opposites in taste, sensibilities and influence to come together in common understanding. 

As an art, which good art reflects passion, it's safe to say that The Beastie Boys were extremely passionate about their art.  They've helped me enjoy life more and will forever live as the zeitgeist of an era. 

To get a good look at who The Beastie Boys are, watch this 2007 interview with MCA, Ad-Rock and Mike D on the Charlie Rose Show.  Oh, and be sure to spin those Beastie Records for LIFE!
