Very sad

Ill Communication is one of all time favourites. One of those albums when you have the iPod on shuffle that you know the exact track that comes next and you get a bit upset when it doesn't seamlessly segue.

A bit more info on how/why:

Nice to see lots of love for the Beasties on the forums. Guess a lot of us grew up with them. We absolutely hammered Check Your Head in our common room back in 92!, brings back a lot of wicked memories.

Big, big, often under appreciated talent for sure. Very sad news.

Tragic news. I thought he was on the mend too. Had the pleasure of seeing them live 3 times and they were brilliant every time.

Really gutted by this...had high hopes he was winning his battle!

Have dumped all the albums onto my mp3 player...wonder if they have any additional material to release one final album?

I was mad in Def Jam recordings mainly because they really did define rap and hip-hop and brought it into the mainstream.

I still own lots of vinyl including these Def Jam Classics.

Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill - Says it all really, the real success story for the Beasties and one that still sounds fresh today. She's crafty and Rhymin and Stealin just sound as good as they did 20+ years ago and it will always remind me of my adolescence and excellent happy days.

LL Cool J - Radio and Bigger and Deffer. Both of these were just quality. ROCK THE BELLS!

Public Enemy - Yo! Bum Rush the Show. This has to be one of the best debut albums of all time, with Sophisticated and You're gonna get yours belting out the sound is raw and so underground. A testament to Chuck D.

Others include Slick Rick, EPMD, Onyx and Eric Sermon.

Totally gutted to find out.

Grew up with their music and am still a huge fan, was lucky enough to see them live at their Manchester Five Boroughs gig and was really hoping once Adam was on the mend I'd get to see them again if they toured over here for Hot Sauce.

RIP MCA

Awful, just awful Cancer takes away another legend. Hello Nasty especially got me through some tough times.

RIP MCA.

Did anyone see how Sky News reported this yesterday ?

It was something along the lines of - he was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, but it's not yet confirmed if this is actually what he has died from.

Even as the news first broke, it's a bit much really to even hint that it could have been anything else ...

Remember seeing them at a very wet and windy T in the Park in 98 and it was awesome, I think they are the only Rap band who would pull off the blue boiler suit and yellow wellies look, Was hopefully they would tour Scotland/TiTP again once Adam had recovered

Can still remember hearing Fight for your Right for the first time all those years ago and even after all this time The Beastie Boys are still my Snowboarding soundtrack, Strapped to my board coming down a mountain there is nothing better

Always had loads of time for the Beasties. Didn't exactly grew up with their music, but got a good few albums of theirs over the years. Never managed to see them live, would have loved to have done.

Bet there's been loads of grumpy neighbours angry with Sabotage coming through the walls around the world this weekend, but you can't play it quietly can you?

RIP MCA

To be fair that was the official line at the time. A lot of places were reporting that it was 'suspected' that it was complications due to the cancer. But nothing was confirmed. I'm assuming it has been now.

It's quality. You can well imagine it hangin about with R2-D2. And when the fan is switched on it looks like it's scanning for life-forms like R2-D2 does on the ice world of Hoth when Luke Skywalker goes missing. Quality in moton. The other day it disappeared. I said, "where's the bag-l gone? have the jawas come to pick it up in the sandcrawler?" to which one of the girls in the office replied, "No, Les the porter!" —Captainchode

Listened to Ill Communication on the way home from work tonight - that LP rocks.

That middle section - Root Down/Sabotage/Get It Together! Wow.

I can't believe that was 14 years ago! The hairs on the back of my neck stood up watching that.

I remember buying Check Your Head the day it came out and me and my mate nearly **** ourselves when we heard Time For Livin. I'd have loved them to do a whole album like that.

This is great timing. I can't understand how it's possible to sue for using samples when the law was introduced *after* the albums were made.
