Malcolm McLaren (22 January 1946 – 8 April 2010)
Very sad news about Malcolm McLaren who has died aged 64 of cancer.
The world today would be so different without him. He made the dull 70’s exciting and later took Hip-Hop mainstream in the UK in the early 80’s. We are unlikely to see someone like him again.
McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s son, Joseph Corre, has paid tribute to his father who he stated was “the original punk rocker” who “revolutionised the world”. “He’s somebody I’m incredibly proud of. He’s a real beacon of a man for people to look up to,” he added.
The Guardian has also written a piece featuring his career in videos which you view here.
