Brighton’s respect for Adam Yauch


Yesterday I visited the spot where British graffiti artist Aroe has paid his respect to Beastie Boy Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch who sadly past away on May 4 of this year. Back in July of 2009, Yauch was diagnosed with cancer of the salivary gland.

The graffiti that sits proudly at Oxford Place, Brighton references the Beastie Boys debut album Licensed To Ill (1986) which since it’s release has gone on to sell over nine million copies in the US.

I would consider myself a rather big fan of the Beastie Boys and the death of musician/film-maker/activist and Buddhist Adam Yauch is a huge huge shame.
