The Schmooze

Malcolm McLaren, Former Sex Pistols Manager, Dies

The message on Malcolm McLaren’s Web site today is “Malcolm will return shortly”.

That’s not likely, since the legendary punk impresario – he thrust the Sex Pistols, which he managed, on an unsuspecting public – died yesterday in Switzerland of cancer at the age of 64.

But the impish humor behind the posting sounds a perfect coda to McLaren’s life, which seemed dedicated to upending expectations and pushing contrarian culture, all with wit and a kind of elegance.
