Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
It’s gotta be difficult to grieve in public, but that’s what remaining Beastie Boys members Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond are doing through various channels this week following the passing of Adam Yauch. Horovitz, also known as Ad-Rock, says he’s glad to know that all the love MCA “put out into the world is coming right back at him.” Mike D says on Facebook that the last few days “have been a blur of deep emotions for our closest friend, band mate and really brother.” He also says that Yauch was an example of “what determination, faith, focus and humility coupled with a sense of humor can accomplish.” MCA passed away Friday after battling cancer.

Avid fisher and 3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell took a prize at the Porter Wagoner Memorial Artists & Anglers Memorial Fishing Tournament over the weekend. Harrell fished with his dad, who’s a pro, and they took the prize for biggest fish. Interestingly, the band loves to fish. 3 Doors Down front man Brad Arnold won the tournament two years ago.
