A small tribute as cancer claims another legend, MCA. Rapper. Beastie. Humanitarian. Budist. All round funky white brother. One of the individuals that has helped shaped me and my generation. A positive role model and a constant source of inspiration...I hope his life will become a legacy that lives through the next generation and long into the future. The world will forever be more colourful and tolerant because of my man MCA "...whos got a beard like billy goat!" RIP ADAM "MCA" YAUCH!
Check out the first & last time I saw the Beasties live, thanks to some randomly (& divinely) acquired tickets in 2006. Was at a small venue called Hiro in NYC for a small ASPCA benefit concert. I was with two of my favourite people, Peter and Dianne Fahey while we were on the US Sneaker Pimps tour. We were close enough to the stage to high five the band members as they literally showered spit on us as they rapped all the classic Beastie Boys joints.
My top album of all time, PAULS BOUTIQUE.
