In the wake of Beastie Boys member MCA's unfortunate death this past Friday, Ad-Rock and Mike D, the other members of the famed New York group, have both issued statements regarding the loss of their friend and bandmate.

Ad-Rock took to the band's official website, saying, "As you can imagine, shit is just fkd up right now. But i wanna say thank you to all our friends and family (which are kinda one in the same) for all the love and support. 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."

Mike D's reaction came on Facebook, where he wrote, "I know, we should have tweeted and instagrammed 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."

Numerous other musicians gave statements in response to MCA's passing, including Jay-Z, Thom Yorke, and Madonna.
