Big Sleep Until Brooklyn: Adam Yauch Has Died

Sad news, Adam Yauch, of the Beastie Boys, has died.  It is perhaps hard to recall but there was a moment, a genuine one, in 1986 and 1987, when they were the biggest sound in music, in the world.  I was in Berlin around that time, bumming around for a few months, and Licensed To Ill was the smartass-ultracool rowdy soundtrack of that summer.  Yauch, part of the first great white rap group, is now timeless.  No sleep, in peace.
