Beastie Boys - Beastie Boy Mike D Struggling To Come To Terms With Adam Yauch's Passing

Beastie Boys rapper Mike D has been in a "blur of deep emotions" after losing his friend and bandmate Adam Yauch to cancer.
Yauch, known as Mca, died on Friday (04May12) at the age of 47 following a three-year battle with the disease.
Bandmate Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz broke his silence about Yauch's passing on Sunday night (06May12), thanking friends and family for their outpouring of "love and support", and now fellow Beastie Boy Mike D has opened up about the loss and paid tribute to his late pal.
In a post on the band's Facebook.com page, the star, real name Michael Diamond, admits he's struggling to come to terms with Yauch's death.
He writes: "I know, we should have tweeted and instagrammed (blogged) every sad, happy and inspired thought, smile or tear by now. But honestly the last few days have just been a blur of deep emotions for our closest friend, band mate and really brother. I miss Adam so much.
"He really served as a great example for myself and so many of what determination, faith, focus, and humility coupled with a sense of humor can accomplish. The world is in need of many more like him. We love you Adam."
Madonna, Jay Z, Eminem and Justin Timberlake were among the big names who remembered Yauch over the weekend (05-06May12) following the tragic news.
