Word got out this morning, May 4, 2012 that Beastie Boys’ Adam “MCA” Yauch has died after a three-year-long battle with cancer, according to a story on RollingStone.com.
Adam was the snowboarder in the group and his death had many in the industry reeling. Here’s what Mike Ranquet had to say on Facebook:
I spent a lot of time and travelled all over with that dude and I’ll miss him dearly. I’ll always laugh when I think of our trip to Vietnam, we were the two funniest dudes on the planet for those 4 weeks. RIP Adam and I hope you find the “highly coveted deodorant” we were searching for on our adventures.
Our thoughts are with his wife, daughter, and the entire Beastie Boys family.
