Madonna: The Beastie Boys were one of a kind!

Adam Yauch, a founding member of the pioneering hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, has died at the age of 47. Yauch, also known as MCA, had been in treatment for cancer since 2009. He was diagnosed in 2009 after discovering a tumor in his salivary gland.

Madonna stated…

The Beastie Boys were one of a kind!
And so was Adam!
They were all an important part of my musical history and integral to the musical revolution that was happening at the time.
I’m very sad to hear about Adam’s passing.
God bless him and his family

Back in 1985, the Beastie Boys were the opening act of Madonna’s The Virgin Tour.
Here are a few pictures, including Adam Yauch and Mike D on stage with Madonna…
