He was " the anti-establishment provocateur behind the Sex Pistols," and much of the Punk movement , according to CNN, and he’s died of cancer at age 64.
That could describe only one person: Malcolm McLaren, who managed the Sex Pistols during their heyday.
Prior to his gig with the Sex Pistols, McLaren had been involved with the New York Dolls for a time.
And later in his life he became involved in some reality TV shows in the U.K., including "Big Brother:Celebrity Hijack."
The CNN article quotes writer Andy Gill from the U.K. publication the Independent: McLaren’s "passing throws into even starker relief the drab, corporate nature of a pop industry in dire need of entrepreneurs with a little of McLaren’s intelligence, wit and non-conformist spirit."
