    Beastie Boys co-founder Adam (MCA) Yauch dead at 47

    Yauch was 47, according to the birth date on his Wiki page.

    Adam Yauch, one-third of the pioneering hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, has died at the age of 48, Rolling Stone has learned. Yauch, also known as MCA, had been in treatment for cancer since 2009. The rapper was diagnosed in 2009 after discovering a tumor in his salivary gland.

    Yauch sat out the Beastie Boys' induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, and his treatments delayed the release of the group's most recent album, Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2. The Beastie Boys had not performed live since the summer of 2009.
    ---
    Yauch co-founded the Beastie Boys with Mike "Mike D" Diamond and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horowitz in 1979. The band started off as a hardcore punk group, but soon began experimenting with hip-hop. The band broke big with their first proper album, Licensed to Ill, in 1986, and further albums Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head and Ill Communication cemented the band as a true superstar act.

    I remember the Beasties from waaaay back before 1983, receiving mention in the Village Voice; and I recall the negative reaction from some critics to 'Cooky Puss,' their second EP and their first having a go at hip hop.

    Requiescat in pace, Adam. Those who entertain us are special humans indeed.

    I liked the Beasties because those guys knew their record collections.
