Default R.I.P. Malcolm McLaren

Whether you loved him or loathed him he was in part responsible for some top bands and top tunes - The Pistols and Bow wow wow to mention just 2.

Sad to hear about the loss to Punk Rock...

McLaren was said to pioneer punk, although I am pritty sure it was the Ramones, but whatever anyones oppinion he was a top band manager for the Sex Pistols, without him, the Sex Pistols would remain underground and unheard of... I listen to some of their songs when I am in an anarchist mood (non political mind you, hate political ideolagies)

The Sex Pistols are one of the most overrated, talentless bands ever. You have to give Malcom credit though. He saw a niche and cashed in on it and the public lapped it up. The Simon Cowell of his day.

I loved the Pistol's, even though I prefer The Clash and The Ramones. I had a chance to see them live (wothout Sid - RIP) on there reunion tour and they were fantastic. But anyway we are talking about Malcom annd I have to agree with LIONESSHEART with the "Simon Cowell" comment...
