Very sad. The Beastie Boys were the first band I ever truly loved. I bought the tape of License to Ill after saving my allowance money for 7 weeks when I was in 3rd Grade. :Pours out some Brass Monkey:

If you can feel what I'm feeling then it's a musical masterpiece
But if you can hear what I'm dealing with then that's cool at least
What's running through my mind comes through in my walk
True feelings are shown from the way that I talk
And this is me, y'all-I M.C.,
Y'all my name is M.C.A. and I still do what I please
And now I'd like to introduce
I'll pass the mic to D. for a fist full of truth :pimp: :heart:

Very sad day. Had a feeling we were going to see this when he couldn't make the R&R Hall induction.

Love the Beasties since High School. Still have my tri-fold first day of release copy of Paul's Boutique on vinyl.

Damn...just....damn... :sad:

What a bummer. I had no idea he was doing so poorly.

Mick Boogie just made a really great Beastie Boys mixtape with rarities, remixes, etc for anybody interested in some audio therapy.

You can read about it here.

As I develop the awakened mind
I praise the buddhas as they shine
I bow before you as I travel my path
To join your ranks, I make my full time task

For the sake of all beings I seek
The enlightened mind that I know I'll reap
Respect to Shantideva and all the others
Who brought down the dharma for the sisters and brothers

I give thanks for this world as a place to learn
And for this human body that I know I've earned
And my deepest thanks to all sentient beings
For without them there would be no place to learn what I'm seeing

There's nothing here thats not been said before
But I put it down now so that I'll be sure
To solidify my own views
And I'll be glad if it helps anyone else out too

If others disrespect me and give my flack
I'll stop and think before I react
Knowing that they're going through insecure stages
I'll take the opportunity to exercise patience

I'll see it as a chance to help the other person
Nip it in the bud before it can worsen
A chance for me to be strong and sure
As I think on the Buddhas who have come before

As I praise and respect the good they've done
Knowing only love can conquer hate in every situation
We need other people in order to create
The circumstances for the learning that we're here to generate

Situations that bring up our deepest fears
So that we can work to release them until they've cleared
Therefore, it only make sense
To thank our enemies despite their intent

The Bodhisattva path is one of power and strength
A strength from within to go the length
Seeing others are as important as myself
I strive for a happiness of mental wealth

With the interconnectedness that we share as one
Every action that we take affects everyone
So in deciding for what a situation calls
There is a path for the good of all

I try to make my every action for that highest good
With the altruistic wish to achieve buddahood
So I pledge here before everyone who's listening
To make my every action for the good of all beings

For the rest of my lifetimes and
Even beyond I vow to do my best to do no harm
And in times of doubt i can think on the dharma
And the enlightened ones who've graduated Samsara

I only saw them once. It was at the Meadowlands / continental Arena. But it was Tribe Called Quest's last show, or second to last show.

Very sad indeed.

first saw em at lollapalooza 94, then at the civic center in 95 with the roots opening...saw em at bonnaroo in 09 and it was my personal favorite set of the whole weekend

first 2 tapes i ever bought...NWA straight outta compton and Beastie Boys licensed to ill

at around ages 11-12ish, when check your head came out, the bboys were pretty much all i listened to, and my entire family couldn't stand it :lol:

i remember everyone including myself did not like paul's botique when it first came out, and then years later we thought it was the greatest rap album of all time...i always called it the sgt. peppers of hip-hop...i've read somewhere that it would be impossible to record that album now with how much money it would cost to get the rights to all those samples...i have a bboys sample source collection and there's over 150 songs sampled from paul's botique...insane

when ill communication came out and i really listened to it and their change in attitude, it was partly what influenced me to change my attitude and outlook on life, esp when really letting the lyrics to boddhisattva vow sink in

it's very rare that a celebrity death shakes me up as much as this one is doing right now :cry:

Dust Brothers have produced two of my all time favorite albums, wish they were more active.

There's a great documentary from independentlens called Copyright Criminals. It covers the entire history of sampling and how all these groundbreaking albums would be impossible to produce today.

I saw them at lollapolooza 94 too. First time I saw them. Then i saw them again a coupl of years later and had the priviledge of seeing them do a fantastic instrumental set at Radio City not too long ago (several years now..)

Friggin sucks, man. Sucks!.

I was brought up on classic rock. Licensed to Ill came out when I was maybe a sophomore in high school, and it was a revelation about all the other music out there. I remember driving around, up to no good, blasting it out the car window.

Huge loss. Grew up on the Beaties. Glad I caught them once, an insane set in Auckland New Zealand during Big Day Out. Crowd full of idiots who had no idea what they were witnessing. They did an all instrument segment of the show busting out grooves from Ill Communication, actually heard people booing. Wtf! Meanwhile I danced my ass off knowing how dope it really was to just chill and watch them jam.

MCA RIP :heart:

He had the other guys read a prepared statement for him in which he apologized for not being able to attend and telling the fans, the Beastie Boys induction was as much a moment for them as for the members of the group.
