Music mourns godfather of punk Malcolm McLaren
Impresario who made the Sex Pistols infamous dies in Switzerland at the age of 64 after a long battle with cancer
Malcolm McLaren, the former manager of the Sex Pistols and impresario, has died from cancer, aged 64.
He died in hospital in Switzerland with his partner, 37-year-old Korean- American Young Kim by his bedside, along with his son Joe Corre. Ms Kim told The Independent: "We were there with him when he passed away. He was diagnosed with cancer in October. He was very active until the end of February when his tumour became very aggressive. He just went very quickly. He said he wanted to be buried at Highgate cemetery. We are now taking steps to try to make that happen."
McLaren had kept his illness quiet. In February he had travelled to New York in February for the launch of an art book before returning to Switzerland to be treated at a clinic.
