Adam Yauch remembered by Beastie Boys bandmate Adam Horovitz

Posted on

Beastie Boys founding member Adam “MCA” Yauch is gone but not forgotten. Soon after his death on Friday, dozens of celebrities mourned their fallen comrade on Twitter. And last night, Yauch’s bandmate Adam Horovitz — a.k.a. Ad-Rock — posted his own MCA remembrance on the hip-hop group’s official Tumblr page.

“as you can imagine, sh-t is just fkd up right now,” the post begins. “but i wanna say thank you to all our friends and family (which are kinda one in the same) for all the love and support.

“i’m glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him,” it continues. Horovitz’s words are accompanied by a photo of a fist that bears a Sharpie-drawn tribute to Yauch.

Yauch died after a long battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Dechen Wangdu, and their daughter, Tenzin Losel.
