Former manager of “The Sex Pistols,” Malcolm McLaren dies at 64

BY LINELLE SCHULTZ

Former manager of “The Sex Pistols,” Malcom McLaren has passed away at the age of 64 in New York losing his struggle with cancer. “The Sex Pistols” are an iconic punk band from the UK that formed in 1975 and changed the future of punk in more ways than you can imagine. They were often the center of controversy, and still managed to top the music charts. They are most decidedly responsible for jump starting the punk movement in the UK and ultimately worldwide.

According to The Independent, McLaren received most of his fame in 1977 when “The Sex Pistol’s” God Save the Queen single got banned from radios including the BBC.

While it was McLaren who brought the band to fame and fortune, in the end he was ultimately the guy who they blamed for their disbandment. The members accused him of withholding money and as a result mismanaging them. He went on to create tunes of his own, many which have been brought to attention from modern stars Eminem and Mariah Carey.
