Adam Yauch, a founding member of the Beastie Boys who had been battling cancer, died today at age 47. The outpouring of love for him and his music has been overwhelming. Everyone on Twitter, Facebook, everywhere, just wants to talk Beastie Boys—which has MCA in an almost-clean-sweep of worldwide and US trending. Crazy.
Paul’s Boutique is on at the Gawker office, as it probably is in a million places right now. We’re all sad to lose Yauch so early. We’ll miss the man who had more rhymes than he had grey hairs—which was a lot, because he had his share.
