The tributes and condolences have poured in since the passing of Beastie Boys member Adam “MCA” Yauch, and on Sunday night, fans heard from another one of the respected group’s members, Adam “Adrock” Horovitz.
As MTV reports, Horovitz posted the note regarding Yauch’s Friday death on the Beastie Boys’ Tumblr, offering gratitude for the support the surviving members of the New York trio have received.
“As you can imagine, s*** is just fkd up right now,” Horovitz wrote. “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.”
Bands like Coldplay and the Red Hot Chili Peppers offered musical tributes during their shows that Friday, and several celebs, throughout music, movies and beyond, shared their memories of Yauch and reflected on the contributions he made with his career and his activism via Twitter.
