The world of music is in mourning after the deeply saddening news of the death of one of Beastie Boys founding members Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch at the age of 47.

The Brooklyn-born rapper had been battling cancer since he was diagnosed in 2009.

Yauch was too sick to attend the bands induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month instead sending a letter dedicating the award to his band-mates and their fans.

Along with being a musician Yauch was also a passionate campaigner for Tibetan rights and a director, he directed numerous Beastie Boys music videos under the alias Nathanial Hornblower.

However it will be as one third of the pioneering Hip-Hop act Beastie Boys that Yauch will be remembered most fondly for.

One of the biggest bands of the late 80’s and 90’s the Beastie Boys released the biggest selling debut album in Columbia records history with Licensed to Ill in 1986.

Famed for not only their musical style but their brand of street style in which they brought to the early Hip-Hop scene, even now the band still show others how to look cool as you get older.

Yet even with all the Beastie Boys wardrobe changes one thing remained the same one member of the trio would almost always don a pair of super cool sunglasses.

Oakley Fast Jacket Ambassador Mcilroy Returns To World Number One

Rory Mcilroy reclaimed the world number one spot this weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship which took place at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Although the 23 year old finished second after a close playoff with Rickie Fowler and D.A. points, he can take consolation in the fact that it was enough to edge past Luke Donald at the top of the world rankings.

This can only increase Mcilroy’s confidence when he comes to defend his US Open title in June.

The Northern Irish superstar first came to public attention when he played his first professional European Tour Event at the age of just 16.

Now just 23 and the world number one the sky is the limit for Mcilroy.

Obviously being so good at such a young age attracts a lot of attention which means the young golfer has a list of sponsors as long as his arm.

Among the sponsors is Oakley which of course sponsors numerous golfers, Mcilroy’s weapon of choice is the Oakley Fast Jacket which are also the preferred Oakley sunglasses of one of the more colourful characters on tour Ian Poulter.

Clubmaster Sunglasses Lover Jack White Releases New Album

Since the White Stripes announced they were no longer going to be making music together last year there has been a Jack White sized hole in our heart. However we weren’t in mourning long as the Detroit born singer broke the news that he was to release a solo album just weeks later, which immediately sent us into a frenzy of excitement. Finally, this week, the wait came to an end with the former White Stripes frontman making his record available for sale worldwide. Interest is said to be huge with the album being tipped to top the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

Often proclaimed as the coolest man in music Jack White is also known for his very eccentric style of dress and living. White ‘hangs his hat’ in Nashville, Tennessee and his home includes such wondrous curiosities as his label offices, a recording booth, a record store, a darkroom, a lounge for parties and even a concert venue.

Naturally White’s taste for the peculiar spills over into his dress sense as well. During his White Stripe days Jack tended to stay with the aesthetic of the band and mainly wore red, white and black. Nowadays, however, White is somewhat of a poster boy for the vintage look and of course no vintage look is complete without a pair of classic clubmaster sunglasses.

Brand New Collection of Eco Friendly Sunglasses By Stella McCartney

Certain people are destined to be superstars from an early age, fashion designer Stella McCartney is most definitely one of them!

Daughter of legendary Beatles songwriter Paul McCartney and his photographer wife Linda, Stella travelled the world with her father’s band wings at a very young age.

Stella’s early cultural experience has undoubtedly helped to broaden her horizons, going on to learn her own trade at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.

In 1995 Stella showcased her graduation collection which was bought by a London fashion boutique.

Often criticised for only making it big because of who her father is and not necessarily due to her skill as a designer; Stella McCartney has gone on to prove her critics wrong time and time again.

Stella has designed clothes for countless celebrities and even designed clothes for movies and music tours.

Perhaps what makes Stella McCartney stand out from the crowd the most is her strict ‘no animal’ policy and her eco-friendly approach to fashion.

The latest announcement from the British designer and environmentalist is that the brand will release a line of eco-friendly designer sunglasses.

The sunglasses will be made of more than 50 per cent natural and renewable materials.

Keep your eco-friendly eyes peeled as this exciting new collection of Stella McCartney sunglasses will be available from B Sunglasses later this month!
