The former musician passed away after a battle with frontal lobe dementia on Thursday morning (May 19) at 7:30am at a hospice in Danvars, Massachusetts. John‘s death was confirmed to Rolling Stone by his father.

John went to high school with fellow group member Mike Diamond and he is credited with coming up with the name Beastie Boys. They formed the group with Adam Yauch and Kate Schellenbach back in July 1981.
