RIP Malcolm McLaren

Was sad today to hear Macolm McLaren has died of cancer at 64; he was quite the pioneer of a lot of things and somewhat of a punk rock mogul. Although he is most famous for managing the Sex Pistols he also had his own music career which included this classic Buffalo Gals (1983) which really brought hip hop to the
forefront in the UK. He was married to Vivienne Westwood and together they opened the very famous SEX store on the Kings Road, London, selling her punk style clothes. They had a son together who is now co-owner of Agent Provocateur.
Although he was known as an eccentric man there is no doubt he was a revolutionary of his scene; respect!
