Adam Yauch, has passed. People are hanging their heads low everywhere. It’s a sad time.
Though I only met MCA a couple times, it felt like I’d known him my whole life. I grew up with the Beastie Boys, and also grew with them. As they matured and got wiser I felt like I was doing the same thing, personally and musically. They were a huge influence on me. His death can be equated to the loss of a Paul or a John, as I’ve often felt they are my generation’s Beatles.
It really meant a lot to me as a longtime fan, to be handpicked by the Beasties to remix their catalog.
Even though we’ve lost Adam Yauch, we will always have his music.
