A blog to get Spinal Tap into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (and whatever else I want it to be about)

MCA is gone

Tonight’s rebroadcast of the RnRHoF Induction will take on a more profound meaning with yesterday’s passing of MCA. I won’t be watching because I don’t have HBO and I’ll be at The KROQ Wennie Roast with Garbage, Pennywise, Silversun Pickups, (and Incubus & Coldplay — watch the webcast here). I’ll be at the Heal the Bay booth, promoting this group is one of the beneficiaries. Then I’ll get to see some of the performers. I imagine there will be several tributes tonight.

But the Huffington Post put up a short clip of The Beastie Boys induction speech. The clip that follows is The Roots and other luminaries playing tribute to the boys (I couldn’t embed them). Worth watching.

Peace.
