So SO bummed right now.

Such a huge fan of the B-boys and MCA was/is my favorite. I'd always sing his part with my friends when we'd do Paul Revere or Pass the Mic.

I never got to see the Beastie Boys live.

I'm really farking sad about this shiat right now, goddamnit!

Und Becks: I saw them play at the Tibetan Freedom concert at DC in 98. Intergalactic was just starting to get a lot of play on the radio. They came out in lab coats and just rocked. I can't say I'm their biggest fan (just familiar with their hits), but man their live show was awesome!

A few years ago I saw a video of them live in concert, the camera followed them moving around backstage, into the halls and finally to another spot up high in the crowd, where they continued to do some songs for the encore. I wish I could find that video again

They did a last minute warm up show the day before the Tibetan Freedom concert at the Electric Factory in Philly, they announced it the day before the show, sold all of the tickets will call.

I got to see them at one of the Virginfest's in Baltimore a few years back also, it was right when the Mix Up came out and they were all playing clear instruments.

They have confirmed his death on the Beastie Boys website. Link

And there I am in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at three o' clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&M's to fill a brandy glass, or MCA wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Biz Markie pops his head 'round the door and mentions there's a little sweetshop on the edge of town. So, we go, and - it's closed. So there's me, Ad-Rock, and Mike D breaking into this little sweetshop right? Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. Well I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son, that's a different story altogether... I had to beat them to death with their own shoes... Nasty business really... But sure enough, I got the M&M's and MCA went on stage and did a GREAT show.

Brew78: Ok, so... which version of Brass Monkey is the correct one? So far I've heard the following:

a) Mixed drink - vodka, dark rum, and OJ. There are variants with some other alcohols and juices.

b) Chug a 40 to the label, top off with OJ. The "poor man's mimosa"

c) Mountain Dew and Southern Comfort. I haven't heard this from anywhere other than a friend of mine who absolutely insists this is what it is.

d) other?

We need to organize a synchronized Monkey Toast for some time, call it 10 PM EST? Is 7PM Left Coast Time too early?


I'm down.

/note to self, buy OE and OJ.

StewMcG: Wonder if the Cleveland Indians will go with another song tonight. ("Sabotage" is the theme song for their "at bat" video during home games.)


If Cleveland has any Pride left, they will play it, and when it's heard, the place should erupt into arena of Beastie lovers.

Yeah, lightning struck a group of people in the middle of the stadium. They cancelled the rest of the shows for that day and moved some to the following day. Really sucked.

Damn that's terribly sad news and really hits close to home due to my age. Like many of you I remember listening to Licensed to Ill when it first came out. Changed my life!

Got to see them in 2008 with ben harper. Ben stiller came out and rapped with them. I've seen at least a hundred shows from Johnny Cash to Johnny Mathis, and have to say the Beasties were the most fun, and energetic. (Johnny Mathis is far down the list) RIP Bassman. Also, "mmmmm drop" would have been a great headline:(

I saw the Beastie Boys live in Charlotte in 94 or 95 at Lollapalooza. Smashing Pumpkins were the Lollapalooza headline act for that show. After the Beastie Boys played for an hour or so they left the stage and the Smashing Pumpkin came on. The Smashing Pumpkins played a song and a half and Billy Corgan broke a guitar string, threw down his guitar said fark this and walked off stage. Everyone was pissed and started booing the Smashing Pumpkins. MCA came back out on stage and told everyone if they would chill the Fark out they would come back out on stage and play the rest of the concert. Less than 10 minutes later the Beastie Boys are back on stage and they rocked the house for two or more hours. I think they played every song from every album that they had released that night. It was the best concert EVAR!!!

//RIP MCA you will be missed and thank you for the memories.

mjones73: Freakman: FTFA: MCA recently became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.

Well there's your problem right there.

As far as I know he was still going through the traditional treatments also.


So chemo and all that on a diet low in nutrients and vitamins the body needs, a diet that lowers the immune system? That's sound medical advice.

Stimpy's new tooth: santadog: Seen them 8 times live. Best shows, always fun to be at. Will miss those.

I'm so uber jealous of you....they were the one band left on my "bands to see before I or they die".


Same here. Saw the Hot Sauce Committee Pt. Two billboard last year in the desert after Coachella and said "Next time, I see them FOR SURE!"

RIP

And then Paul's Boutique came out, which really was the best thing ever.


And the album that no one bought until years later.

I love people who claim to have loved it, if they had bought it then it wouldn't have been thought to be a commercial flop prompting them to work harder making him ignore his medical needs and letting this go unchecked.

Good job murderers, assholes.

I didn't care for Licensed to Ill, but when Paul's Boutique came around, it made me a fan. What a great record, and has good memories to go with it. This makes me sad to hear that Adam "MCA" Yauch is dead. What a righteous dude. If the Buddhist cosmology that he believed in is correct, he's one step closer to ending the cycle of birth & death: reincarnation as a cat in a lesbian household.

One Goat, on Account

To the Editor:

I had the great pleasure of reading your unsolicited critique of the "Ch-Check It Out" music video ["Licensed to Stand Still" by Stephanie Zacharek, May 16]. It took some time to get to me, as it had to be curried (sp?) on goatback through the fjords of my homeland, the Oppenzell. And in the process the goat died, and then I had to give the mailman one of my goats, so remember, you owe me a goat.

Anyway, that video is big time good. Pauline Kael is spinning over in her grave. My film technique is clearly too advanced for your small way of looking at it. Someday you will be yelling out to the streets below your windows: "He is the chancellor of all the big ones! I love his genius! I am the most his close personal friend!"

You journalists are ever lying. I remember people like you laughing at me at the university, and now they are all eating off of my feet. You make this same unkind laughter at the Jerry Lewis for his Das Verruckte Professor and now look, he is respected as a French-clown. And you so-call New York Times smarties are giving love to the U2 because they are dressing as the Amish and singing songs about America? (Must I dress as the Leprechaun to sing songs about Ireland so that you will love me? You know the point I make here is true!)

In concluding, "Ch-Check It Out" is the always best music film and you will be realizing this too far passing. As ever I now wrap my dead goat carcass in the soiled New York Times - and you are not forgetting to buy me a replacement! Please send that one more goat to me now!
