WQLZ Music Minute

Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop


Artists remember MCA


It was unfortunate forshadowing when MCA didn’t appear at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony where the Beastie Boys were given high honors. Musicians across the spectrum are sharing their remorse for the loss of Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch. Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Ferrel says “Yauch brought happiness and energy to so many people. Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello says that Yauch’s “humor, talent and gentle soul are just irreplaceable.” Billy Joe Armstrong from Greenday says Yauch “was full of wisdom and encouragement.” Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers says Yauch was “a class act all the way.” Yauch, also known as MCA, was the reason The Beastie Boys got together. In a 2007 Charlie Rose interview with Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA, the group conceded that it was Yauch who pushed for the group to form. News of Yauch’s passing came out Friday. Yauch had battled cancer for years.


MCA's legacy


The passing of MCA leaves behind a legacy of influential music and activism. Yauch not only was the catalyst for The Beastie Boys to form, he was also one of the key organizers for the Free Tibet concerts a few years back that raised money and awareness about the problems the Tibetan people face. His eclectic musical style will be forever recognized as able to cross generational gaps with ease. Rest in peace, MCA!
