Adam 'MCA' Yauch 1964-2012

The Beastie Boys are easily one of my most influential and favorite bands.  'Licensed to Ill' was the first cassette tape I purchased back when I was 11 years old.  I've bought every album they released, and everything that came out as a single, bootleg and rarity.  

I was lucky enough to see them twice back in the late nineties.  I was hoping in 2009 to see them a third time at Lollapalooza.  Unfortunately that would prove to be the beginning of the end for MCA, as they canceled their performance due to his cancer.  

I will definitely miss him, as well as the band.  I grew up with them, and can recall so many different moments throughout my life that they have been a part of.
