RIP: Malcolm McLaren, 1946-2010
Malcolm McLaren – former manager of the Sex Pistols, a recording artist in his own right and one of rock & roll’s quintessential impresarios – died this morning in New York after a long, arduous bout with cancer.
The homepage of McLaren’s website simply says, “Malcolm will return shortly…”
And while we have no proof, we here at Nippertown.com suspect that perhaps McLaren’s demise may have been hastened by watching John Lydon perform with Public Image Ltd. last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Watch PiL performing “Rise” from the show, and let us know what you think:
