'Adrock' of the Beastie Boys pays tribute to Yauch

The tributes and condolences have poured in since the passing of Beastie Boys member Adam "MCA" Yauch, and on Sunday night, fans heard from another one of the respected group's members, Adam "Adrock" Horovitz.

As MTV reports, Horovitz posted the note regarding Yauch's Friday death on the Beastie Boys' Tumblr, offering gratitude for the support the surviving members of the New York trio have received.

"As you can imagine, s*** is just fkd up right now," Horovitz wrote. "But I wanna say thank you to all our friends and family (which are kinda one in the same) for all the love and support."

Bands like Coldplay and the Red Hot Chili Peppers offered musical tributes during their shows that Friday, and several celebs, throughout music, movies and beyond, shared their memories of Yauch and reflected on the contributions he made with his career and his activism.

The musician had been battling cancer since 2009, and passed away at the age of 47 on Friday in New York.

Horovitz added in his post Sunday, "I'm glad to know all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him."

    tcaros – I think if you spell seriously "serioiusly" and overuse the term "dude" (which obviously you would), then you are the one who is "pretty lame".

    Calling him a "musician" is being very generous.

      Why is that? Because he is known for his hip hop career but has played bass on numerous jazz and funk albums with well known modern musicians in those genres and more? Yeap, being quite generous indeed.

    • umm, yea

      @philtration To say he was not a musician makes you an idiot. They have 2 instrumental albums and if you ever saw them in concert or paid any attention you would know that he played bass guitar. You have obliviously only listed to whats played on the radio

      Look at all the haters hatin' on MCA. Not a musician? Please, fool. And to tcaros, pretty lame? Don't worry, there will always be a Nickelback, or Beiber, or some other sack o' crap for you to listen to while you're "sucking like a leach."

    Hi I am tcaros and I prefer the Beibster over any real music. I also enjoy eating cat food. This article is a tribute to a good person that just passed. Seriously, "dude", you gotta lighten up.

    I would just like to say that the Beastie Boys have always been a part of the soundtrack of my life....I still listen to Licensed to Ill til this day and am truly saddened that Mr. Yauch is gone at 47 years old. They were just a bunch of kids back in 1986, but my God they were smart and headed into territory that most of us could only dream of...a new sound and voice that screamed "let's just have a blast together and do something different"....my prayers are with Adam's beautiful wife and young daughter....RIP
