BEASTIE BOYS STAR ADAM YAUCH DIES

Adam Yauch

Beastie Boys group member Adam  (47) has lost his battle with cancer. The rapper and musician was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer in 2009 and underwent radiation therapy.

Yauch also known as MCA formed the Beastie Boys back in the early 1980s alongside fellow members Mike D and Ad Roc, signed to Def Jam Records and went on to sell 40 million albums worldwide.

The strange thing is he crossed my mind yesterday. I wondered what was going on with the group and if his cancer had gone in to remission.

Rest In Peace Adam Yauch.

  1. rest in peace adam…… maximum respect for being you and for being part of the most inspirational hip hop era ever… thank you for being a beastie boy and making great music and using your celebrity to raise awareness on several world issues… thank you

  2. I JUST WANNA SAY… my deejay used to play one of their songs in our end of show segment all the time!!!! respect to them!!

  3. The sad thing is aswell as his death is that I knew what he had died from before I’d even read the post. Once upon a time it was only the elderly that got cancer, now children, young men and young women are getting it. People should be asking questions, why is this happening to younger and younger people, what has changed? Be prepared to swallow some hard truths, don’t allow incredulity to hinder your investigations into this matter.
