Beastie Boys' Mike D pays tribute to Yauch: "I miss Adam so much"

Mike D of the Beastie Boys has spoken out about the death of his band member Adam 'MCA' Yauch.

His emotional statement, which follows one made by Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz earlier today, was posted to the group's official Facebook page and was accompanied by a photograph taken of the overhead screens at New York's Madison Square Garden displaying a moving tribute to Yauch:

"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."

"BTW this photo sent to me by a friend, (thanks Saslow) is just one awesome example of how NYC is such a unique place that amidst it's huge size and frenetic pace it really opens up it's heart in so many ways and on on so many levels in times like these. And though it makes me cry sometimes, it has been really amazing and moving to see."
