Beastie Boys - Beastie Boys' Mike D Pays Tribute To Late Band Mate Adam Horovitz

Beastie Boys rapper Mike Diamond has paid tribute to late bandmate Adam Yauch.

Mike admitted he has been in a ''blur of deep emotions'' since 47-year-old Adam's passing on Friday (04.05.2012) after a three-year battle with cancer in his parotid gland and a lymph node.

He wrote on the group's Facebook page: ''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 humour can accomplish. The world is in need of many more like him. We love you Adam.''

Fellow band mate Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz first voiced his tribute to Yauch - known as MCA - on Sunday night (06.05.2012), posting on the band's blog: ''I'm glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him thank you (sic).''

Madonna, Jay-Z , Justin Timberlake, Coldplay and Eminem were among other big names to pay tribute to the late star in either words or with performances.
