Here is a photo of Adam Yauch performing at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in Washington D.C. in 1998. I was here on this very day. I tried to find one of my photos, but they were all too dark, too aged and totally unscannable.
Eulogizing a celebrity you don’t know and/or met in passing a few times is a ridiculous thing, especially in this age of narcissistic social media. I didn’t post this to talk about MCA to talk about me.
I just want to say the world lost a really REALLY good person today — a person who actually created art, flipped genres and pushed music forward. A person who used his celebrity and impact to enact actual creative and social change that really *did* help make the world a better place. And he was very nice. We lost a good one.
I met him the day after this photo was taken, and the only thing I could think to say (after decades upon decades of intense fandom) was, “Thank you for making my life more fun.”
And it’s still true.
Thank you, Adam Yauch. Thank you for making my life more fun.
