Super gutted. I knew he had cancer a while back but because I hadn't heard anything for a while assumed he'd beat it. Had no idea he was so ill (although he was always ill, if you know what I mean).

Thirty three years before 1979 was 1946. Give or take a year, the Beastie Boys' formation was as far removed from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as it is removed from today.

Day-um!

His music helped me through hard times, sad to see him gone far too early.

Yeah, very very sad to hear. Currently listening to Licensed to Ill followed by Hot Sauce Committee. Massive contribution to music and film. He (et al) was with me throughout my entire childhood and adulthood to date.

Sad news.

Re Yauch, it was listening to a few of their albums albums this weekend, that I remembered how much I loved them. As a 14 (maybe 15?) year old and witnessing the Intergalactic video on MTV, that cool stuff stays with you. I got the album the Christmas after that, then a few years later picked up a few more albums.

I didn't find out until a couple of years back (when 'Awesome... I shot that' was released) that that great video (and.many of their vids) were done by MCA. So talented.

Very sad to hear about Sendak, I can't wait to read Wild Things to my daughter, but she's still a bit young. Even so, when I finish making her bookcase, that and Outside Over There will take pride of place.

Sorry for the double post but ... Vidal Sassoon. I keep forgetting that he was an actual person and not just a shampoo.
