- About Vox
There was a prevalent sadness and anxiety that has surrounded the innovative rap group, Beastie Boys, for the past three years. Album releases were postponed and tour dates were canceled. One of the founding members of the group, Adam Yauch a.k.a. MCA, had developed cancer. Today, Yauch ended his three-year battle with the disease and passed away in his native New York City, the Beastie Boys’ website reports.
Yauch was more than just the scratchy-voiced bass element of the legendary musical trio, he was also activist and director. He also founded a film production and distribution company named Oscilloscope Laboratories. Yauch began what would become the Beastie Boys when he was 17 and would go one to sell over 40 million records worldwide. An entire biography is listed on the band’s website. This is a painful blow for music lovers everywhere, and Yauch will sorely be missed.
