I missed the story from last month that he wouldn't be able to attend the RRHOF induction, which I guess would've at least been a strong indicator that something like this was around the corner. As it is, though, I feel like I've been slapped with a flounder.

Genuinely horrible, and like everyone I know on facebook/twitter is just overflowing with earnest grief. This is the most unexpected and tragic music death news in a long time. Gutted.

So sad, I just read the 33 1/3 Paul's Boutique album a couple weeks ago and was reflecting on how wonderful and unique these guys are.

As I just muttered on FB: Sudden realization of a moment I'd almost forgotten -- I had seen the Beastie Boys once live, Lollapalooza 1994. Person I was with said I was dancing like a crazy idiot during "Sabotage" in particular. And you know what? All good with that, because MCA murdered that bassline and then some. So RIP indeed.

just thinking back to the days when my freshman dorm was covered with two of those gigantic 6' x 4' posters. one from the "Sabotage" set and the other from an Ill Communication promo shoot, with a Check Your Head regular size poster bridging the two. wish i had the pics scanned in now.
