Sadly, Adam Yauch (aka MCA) of the Beastie Boys died today at the age of 47. Diagnosed with a cancerous salivary gland in 2009, Adam stayed upbeat and tried to beat this illness over the years.
The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month. Adam was born in Brooklyn, New York. Adam is survived by his wife, Dechen Wangdu, and his daughter, Tenzin Losel Yauch.
We will miss you Adam !
