Like they say, "Tomorrow is promised to no one"... When I heard the news of your passing it hit me hard as I was not just a long time fan of your music but of your work as an Activist. The first time I seen The Beastie Boys was 1986 or 87 at the age of 16 for the License to Ill tour w/ RUN DMC and I knew then that what you guys were doing was something special.... little did I know that you were going to stand the test of time and touch as many lives as you did with your music and w/ Free Tibet. Thank you for the many good times over the years w/ your live shows and the energy you brought to your music as well as the stage. Thank you for changing the world for the better with your efforts.May you rest in eternal peace. My condolances to your family, friends, and fans. God bless, Paul.
