Malcolm McLaren - 1946-2010


UK paper The Independent reports that Malcolm McLaren, best known as the former manager of the Sex Pistols, died today after a long battle with cancer.


Former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren has died aged 64.

He had been suffering from cancer and died this morning – April 8th – in New York, reports the Independent. His body is set to be flown to London to be buried in Highgate cemetery.


Malcolm McLaren, the former Sex Pistols manager who is credited with helping form the legendary U.K. punk band, has died at the age of 64 after a battle with cancer. “He had been suffering from cancer for some time, but recently had been full of health, which then rapidly deteriorated,” McLaren’s spokesman Les Molloy told The Independent. Molloy confirmed McLaren died in New York this morning; his body will be moved to London for burial in Highgate Cemetery. John Lydon said in a statement, “For me Malc was always entertaining, and I hope you remember that. Above all else he was an entertainer and I will miss him, and so should you.”

Right or wrong, for better or worse, Malcolm McLaren made an impact in the music industry and whether or not you loved him or hated him, the music world is a bit darker without him.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and close friends.

R.I.P. Mr. McLaren
