the video for Mullet Head is sadly instrumental, but it lets you focus on him shredding both bass and powder:

Why did MCA have to die. Couldn't Drake or Lil' John have died instead.

feel like we could poll the guys quoted on his wiki page

Yauch died at age 47 on May 4, 2012.[1][26] The cause of death was not immediately known.[27] Upon his death, Russell Simmons of Def Jam Records said that Yauch "was incredibly sweet and the most sensitive artist, who I loved dearly." Ben Stiller tweeted that Yauch "stood for integrity as an artist."[11] Joel Madden of Good Charlotte said of the Beastie Boys: "We wanted to dress like them, talk like them, and we wanted to make music like them."[10] Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam said that Yauch was "a crazy talent whose contributions with his band were inspirational and consistently ground breaking".[28] Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke wrote, "We looked up to the Beastie Boys a lot when we were starting out and how they maintained artistic control making wicked records but still were on a major label, and the Tibetan Freedom Concerts they organized had a very big influence on me personally and the way Adam conducted himself and dealt with it all impressed me a lot. He was a mellow and [very] smart guy. May he rest in peace".[29] Eminem said in an interview "Adam Yauch brought a lot of positivity into the world and I think it's obvious to anyone how big of an influence the Beastie Boys were on me and so many others".[30]

Mix-Up ≠ In Sound, frog

i know but it's only *kinda* counted for me, i see it as more of a 'side' thing like Aglio e Olio, yes it's album length, but it's not really a "Beastie Boys" album

you don't find it hilarious that a member of one of the best rap groups ever dies and his wiki has ben stiller, pearl jam and good charlotte in tribute?

It's alright...by the time you'd finished your fb post, the video will have been ganked offline.

Odd how little coverage, if any, the mainstream media has given this

it was on the front page of cnn.com over the weekend.

Made the front page of the NYTimes (below the fold). (oops, xp)

Didn't catch the network news that night, but there was about a 2-minute piece on the CBS morning show on Saturday (and it totally sucked; only clip was FFYRTP, completely omitted Yauch's Buddhism/work for Tibet, and ended with some bullshit tagline like "this 'bad boy' will be missed").

My mum knew about it, so there must've been some coverage.

Sick Mouthy (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 7 May 2012 20:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

didn't see it on network news fri or sat. - guess i missed it. Currently, cnn.com home page has only a mention of "artists pay tribute" as the fifth item under the "entertainment" listing

That's crazy, they had a good segment on NPR and I've seen a lot of coverage.

The Washington Times article lives up to the newspaper's batshit insane rep

I saw a couple quick things on local news and Diane Sawyer.

I checked MTV and VH1 a few times and saw nothing more than a 60-second MTV News thing with Sway interrupting an episode of Ridiculousness.

billstevejim, Monday, 7 May 2012 21:00 (1 year ago) Permalink

i'm sure VH1 wanted to run something but Jim Shearer hasn't been able to stop weeping long enough to get in front of a camera

Theres like 9 MTV/VH1 channels now, you'd figure at least one of them could've played some B-Boy retrospectives..

Billy Corgan
Although I did not know Adam well, I respected him as a spiritual warrior who fought strongly for peace in this world. And whether he ever knew it or not, he had a lot to do with my own spiritual awakening. He led with his heart, and in the conversations we had that's what stands out most; that he was real to his core.
