Rest in Peace, Malcolm McLaren
One of rock’s oddest and greatest characters left us April 8, and his passing should be noted. His impact was more than deep on the punk and New Wave music that he encouraged and that has influenced, well, hell, just about everyone. He even made a legitimate splash in the then-embryonic world of hip-hop.
I’m saddened and pleased to present examples of all three genres. Rest in peace, Malcolm!
