Adam Yauch and The Beastie Boys

RIP Adam Yauch aka MCA, one of the founders of the Beastie Boys. The group were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just two weeks ago.

I shot this photo of the Beastie Boys for Rolling Stone in 1985 – they arrived with their producer Rick Rubin who had signed them to his label Def Jam. Their songs like “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)” and “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” changed the world of hip hop.
