Wow this is just terrible and sad, way too young to go :/ He was a notable alumni of my high school and always thought that was something neat to brag about, the news is probably hitting hard with the older staff that are still there. RIP.
Either I made up lies about the Boston Bomber or I fell for someone else's crap. Either way, I have absolutely no credibility and you should never pay any attention to anything I say, no matter what the context. Perm me if I claim to be an insider
I'll admit I haven't listened to much Beastie Boys recently, but this is very sad news. I have fond memories of listening to Ill Communication on tape over and over and over again at summer camp. My bunkmates and I would memorize and perform all the parts of the songs. I was MCA.
