Timeline: To experience this page the way it was built, you have to scroll all the way down to the first post. From there, you can scroll up in chronological order and read through the history of Adam Yauch and the Beastie Boys. You will step through the evolving, small samples of Adam Yauch's life, music, videos, interviews, etc., and find some rare content and articles from people who were there along the way. Unfortunately, Facebook removed the buttons to jump to the bottom and different years of Adam's life on this timeline. Currently, it's a bit frustrating to scroll down and get to the year Adam was born but I hope you enjoy what you find when you do.
Sunny Bak's Favorite Photo | February 6th,1987
"I love the photo of MCA jumping up on the Palladium marquee. We were driving along Sunset Boulevard in a limo, just really having fun on the License to Ill tour, and they were scheduled to play at the Palladium the next night.

May 3rd, 2013 in Brooklyn, New York. | "Palmetto Playground – a small park tucked beneath a highway on-ramp in Brooklyn, just blocks from the late Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch's childhood home – was renamed Adam Yauch Park on Friday to mark the one-year anniversary of his passing on May 4th. Family, friends and fans gathered for a ceremony that celebrated Yauch's life, accomplishments and Brooklyn roots, and speakers included Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, fellow Beastie Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Yauch's mother, Frances. They and many more recalled the passion, compassion, dedication and humor Yauch brought to everything he did, whether it was music, filmmaking or activism, including founding the Milarepa Fund and organizing the Tibetan Freedom Concert." -rollingstone.com
