The Passing of MCA

Music is a very important part of my life. I hear certain songs and instantly I'm transported back in time to certain memories associated with it.

Now, I may never have been that huge of a Beastie Boys fan, but I dug their tunes and they were a defining band of my youth. When the news broke yesterday that Adam "MCA" Yauch had lost his battle with cancer it hit me like a ton of bricks. Forty seven is far to young to pass away and it was horribly sad.

Last night, Coldplay played this tribute to him. Any child of the 80's who can watch this without getting nostalgic is missing a soul. I had to share it with everyone.
