R.I.P.—Malcolm McLaren

Malcolm McLaren, former manager of the Sex Pistols, BowWowWow and the New York Dolls, died today in New York after a bout with cancer. He was 64. The outspoken impresario worked in both the fashion industry and released hip-hop and electronic albums, but he's most famous for his association with the Sex Pistols. The degree to which he helped the UK punk band is much debated. Asked for a job description on the British talk show "Enough Rope" in 2006, McLaren said, "Somehow or another, I remain permanently cool [...] I try to make ideas happen-- ideas that could change life."
