In the days after the passing of Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch have been very dark and very sad for the remaining members, but say the outpouring of support has helped.

The Beastie Boys have sent out a message to their fans expressing their gratitude for all of their good thoughts and well wishes.

In a post on the official Beastie Boys website, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz says he’s having a hard time right now and that Adam “MCA” Yauch wasn’t just a band mate and friend, but he was also a brother.  His family, friends and the fans are helping him through such a tough time. He continues by saying that he’s “glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him.”

MCA died on Friday at the age of 47 after a nearly three year battle with cancer and social media went berserk as soon as news broke. Stars and regular fans alike paid tribute to the late MCA. The New York Mets even paid tribute to Yauch with every player’s walk up music switched to a Beastie Boys song of their choosing. Madison Square Garden also showed their support by keeping a photo of MCA up all weekend on their video screen.

Public memorials cropped up at 511 Canal Street in New York which is where Yauch’s production company is housed and at the corner of Irvington and Ludlow where the cover for their album Paul’s Boutique was shot.

No word on if any official services will be held for MCA.
