A Year and a Day [1] from James Curran [2] on Vimeo [3].

If you’re 51 today, you were 25 when the Beastie Boys released Licensed to Ill; you might remember dancing to “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” They were inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame last year [4], just after the death of 47-year-old lead singer MCA. As the anniversary approaches, we’re starting to see some amazing tributes. Above, an artist put together a trailer for his London art show tribute to MCA. In his own words:

 35 individual framed prints will be on show and for sale in London on May 4th – 5th 2013. Each print represents a different Beastie Boys track. All sales go to charity for cancer care and support. Venue and details to come. Follow me on Twitter @slimjimstudios [5] for updates.

Artist Jim Curran
