We’ll fight on, Adam!

Early in the day, on Friday May 4th, Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys passed away. He was a revolutionary musician and passionate humanitarian. He was only 47. That night Coldplay whipped up an especially poignant tribute to him at their concert.

Enjoy the original Beastie Boys video from 1986.

As I watched these two videos today, it struck me that when we are young we fight our authority figures “For the Right to Party”, but when we get older, we only have to fight ourselves. That’s a bigger battle. How often do we fight off stresses & pressures so we can make time to celebrate and cut loose? Probably not enough. It’s an anthem for all time.

Thank you Adam. Rest in Peace.
