Malcolm Mclaren dead at 64

Former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren has died today at age 64, after a long fight against cancer.

McLaren was born in 1946 in the UK capital and was raised in the Stoke Newington area of the city by his grandmother. Initially an art student he attended St Martin's College Of Art and Goldsmiths College. In addition to managing the Sex Pistols McLaren was one of England's hottest fasion designers during the 1980's punk - new wave movement.

I'll remember him for one absolutely beautiful piece of work, Madame Butterfly
