RIP Malcolm McLaren

Postby ukcharts » Fri Apr 09, 2010 4:51 am

The godfather of punk is dead ... I'm not 100% convinced the world is a better place for his doings, but if it hadn't been him then someone else would have done it anyway, and probably with a lot less flair.

I'd say he was personally responsible for bridging my musical input from the excitement of the mid 60s, over the bland dross of much of the 70s and kicking and screaming into the late 70s / early 80s, the first time I'd had any interest in contemporary music. RIP Malcolm.
