FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE BEASTIE BOYS, JOHN BERRY, DIES AT 52

BREAKING NEWS

According to an article by ABC 7 NEWS:

Founding Beastie Boys member John Berry has died at 52 years of age.

His stepmother, Louise Berry, tells the AP that Berry died Thursday morning at a hospice in Danvers, Massachusetts. What caused John Berry's death? Berry suffered from frontal lobe dementia and had been in declining health for several years, she said.


According to his father, John Berry III, Berry helped found the Beastie Boys in the early 1980s after meeting future band-mate Mike Diamond at the Walden School in New York. Berry III says the band used his Manhattan loft for their first practices and shows. Berry left the group after playing guitar on its first EP. His father says the band was becoming more professional and Berry "wasn't up for that rigor."

The family plans a public celebration of life in the fall.
