Punk empresario passes away

The Quietus is saddened to learn that Malcolm McLaren died this morning. The svengali behind the Sex Pistols, the Burundi drumming sound of post punk, and the hit Buffalo Girls was 64. According to reports, McLaren had been suffering from cancer for some time. A statement to The Independent from spokesman Les Molloy reads: "He had been suffering from cancer for some time, but recently had been full of health, which then rapidly deteroriated. He died in New York this morning. We are expecting his body to be brought back to London and buried in Highgate Cemetery."
