Malcolm McLaren, the British musician, fashion designer, and art school dropout best known as the manager of the Sex Pistols, died of cancer on April 8. He was 64.
Between the early 1970s and early 1980s, McLaren managed influential rock bands like the New York Dolls and Adam and the Ants, and helped to create others, like Bow Wow Wow and the Sex Pistols. Under the direction of McLaren, the Pistols released a pair of legendary singles (“Anarchy in the U.K.,” “God Save the Queen”) and a number one album (Never Mind the Bollocks: Here’s the Sex Pistols) before breaking up in January 1978.
