After battling cancer (of the salivary gland and lymph node) for 3 years...Beastie Boys MCA has died today at 47. Far, far too young.

Apparently, he had missed the bands induction into the rock n' roll HOF in early April, which was a clear sign that he was not doing well.

These guys were a huge part of me growing up, and they were truly pioneers or their genre. He will be missed by many. RIP man.
