Punk rock guru Malcolm McLaren dies aged 64


Published: Today

MALCOLM McLaren was the outrageous icon who boasted that he invented punk rock - and unleashed the Sex Pistols on the world.

The legendary impresario, who died yesterday, achieved notoriety when the band's anti-establishment single God Save The Queen hit No1 during Her Majesty's 1977 silver jubilee.

"Above all else he was an entertainer. I'll miss him and so should you."
