The band came to the front line in the 1980s creating history in the field of arts and today, this band is known for selling more 40 million records worldwide! With the advent of time, Adam started more promising ventures in the field of arts and commerce.

But unfortunately, we lost this legendary person form this world on 4th May, 2012 at the age age of just 47 and departed towards a more heavenly being. He succumbed to a salivary gland cancer that was diagnosed about two years earlier. What is more staggering is that he had always been a staunch an icon of truth and justice, standing boldly against the injustice played upon the Tibetans by China. This makes the world poorer of one strong pillar of peace and justice! Through his career, he had always taken the cause of Tibet with him.
