We got it sorted out shortly after and I admitted that I had never heard much of the Beastie Boys so I didn't really have an opinion. Coincidentally, the Boys had an album that came out the year we met (2004) so we bought it. It only took a few songs and I was hooked.
Sadly, today Adam Yauch (MCA) died of cancer. He was my favorite. Something about his rugged voice was so fantastic to me. When Frank told me, I got choked up. I didn't have any idea how sad I'd be. He seemed like such a good guy.
MCA, you will be missed.
