Like so many people my age, I have a love for the Beastie Boys. Their music has played like a soundtrack throughout my life. So I shouldn’t be surprised that Adam (MCA) Yauch’s death has made me feel pretty melancholy. In the days since his death I have seen numerous tributes, all of which reinforce how much of an effect Yauch had on our world. Sure we have lost other musicians, but this was not an accident or an overdose. Cancer. That equalizer of a disease that has taken far too many far too soon.
So in the sadness, I found this video and it made me smile. Hope it does the same for you.
