Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch Diagnosed With Cancer

07.20.09 8 years ago 14 Comments

The past few months have been good to The Beastie Boys. There was the reissuing of Check Your Head, a successful showing @ Bonaroo and, just this past weekend, the single with Nas made a huge buzz on the nets.

But what a swift kick in the nuts this news is for a Monday morning.

Like I said, I watched My Sister’s Keeper last week, where one of the main characters had leukemia. As I was watching the movie, I started remembering the suffering that both of my grandfathers went through as they battled cancera, all before eventually succumbing to the disease. To say the least, the processes are gut wrenching, both physically for the patient as well as mentally & emotionally for the family. So when you hear someone diagnosed with the illness, your first reaction is to cringe…and then hope for the best in their fight against it.

With that said, prayers & well wishes to the Beastie Boys. We’ll keep you in our thoughts, MCA.
