Goodbye Malcom McClaren

There is no way I could not say anything or wait another day. Malcom McClaren was and still is one of my favorite artist. I will be doing a piece on him in the Freedom Writers page next week...Let's hope good guys like Layne were there to show him the way and let him sit in on their Mad Season music...

Managers tend to get a pretty bad shake in punk history, particularly string-pulling, half-brilliant ones like Malcolm McLaren, but now that the dust has settled, it’s remarkable how many great ideas he’s had a hand in. The Sex Pistols are the big one, of course, but there are all sorts of minor creations in the years after, not the least of which is his son’s Agent Provocateur line. It’s a less interesting scene without him.
The music business will always be full of hustlers, but it’ll be a while until one as dapper as Mr. McLaren comes along again.

Here is his epic version of Madam Butterfly....
