R.I.P., Ric Menello

On March 1 this year, music video director and movie writer Ric Menello passed away at 60 years old.

Menello became friends with hip hop producer Rick Rubin, through whom he met the Beastie Boys. He directed their iconic video for "(You Gotta Fight) For Your Right (To Party!)" before going on to write screenplays for such films as Tougher Than Leather and Two Lovers. His final film, The Immigrant, will be released later this year.
