    Wow, that is sad! I remember hearing that he had cancer a while back, but I though he had recovered. :(

    :( I just checked and found that I have no Beastie Boys in my collection. So right now I'm listening to samples of their Anthology: The Sounds Of Science compilation (two discs, 42 tracks in all).

    I have several of their albums, but I used to have Paul's Boutique (their best IMO) and lost it somewhere along the way...I may go buy it after work tonight. Le sigh.

    :( So sad to hear.

    I could listen to Intergalactic and Sabotage over and over.

    Saddened by this news. I heard he was not present at the RNR induction last month. I guess he was in final stage of his life.

    Pioneers of music and The Beastie Boys are legends, underrated and underappreciated legends.

    :wuzrobbed Love the Beastie Boys! I choreographed a dance for my high school dance team to Brass Monkey. My cousin and I were just talking about them last week and how we had recently thrown in the CD on a road trip and jammed out. good times.

    Apparently at a Coldplay concert last night Chris Martin did a Beastie Boys tribute - doing a piano ballady version of Fight for your right to party. OMG it was just awful.

    Whilst the intent was honorable, the execution was really embarassing.
