Beastie Boys battle for Barack

Adam Yauch, AKA MCA of the Beastie Boys, died today at the age of 47 after a 3-year battle with cancer. Locally he might be remembered by some for the time he and the rest of the Beasties showed up for a Rock The Vote show on October 29, 2008 at the then Chevrolet Centre to stump for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The Beastie Boys, who were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, also held court in Kilcawley Center at Youngstown State University during that trip which also featured Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Ben Harper and a guest appearance by actor Ben Stiller.
