Adam Yauch Of The Beastie Boys Dead At 48

Adam Yauch, aka MCA of the Beastie Boys, is dead at the age of 48.  Yauch had been battling cancer of the salivary gland since 2009, and was forced to miss the group’s induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as a result.  Rumors circulated in 2010 that Yauch was free of cancer, but sadly that turned out to be untrue.
