    • FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2016

    Original Beastie Boys member, John Berry, has died from Frontal lobe dementia, a disorder that occurs when the frontal lobes of the brain begin to shrink. Berry, was only 52 when he died yesterday morning in a hospice in Danvers, Massachusetts. Dissimilarly to alzheimer's, frontal lobe dementia develops significantly earlier in life, with symptoms appearing as early as the age of 45.




    Berry is credited for having come up with the name, The Beastie Boys when they were teenagers, forming the groups in July 1981 with original members, Mike Diamond, Adam Yauch, Kate Schellenbach. Berry left the band shortly after they released their first seven-inch EP Polly Wog Stew in 1982. However, Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond acknowledge Berry as having played a significant role in the band's identity, and mentioned him, in the most endearing and hilarious way, during their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction speech back in 2012.
