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.
