Malcolm McLaren, the former manager of punk group the Sex Pistols, has died in New York, aged 64, his agent has said.
McLaren, the ex-partner of designer Vivienne Westwood, was believed to have been diagnosed with cancer a while ago.
He set up a clothes shop and label with Westwood on London's King's Road in the 1970s and was later a businessman and performer in his own right.
The couple had a son, Joseph Corre, the co-founder of lingerie shop Agent Provocateur.
His agent told the BBC McLaren passed away on Thursday morning.
Spokesman Les Malloy said he expected McLaren's body to be returned to the UK.
McLaren also managed a number of other bands, including the New York Dolls and Bow Wow Wow before producing his own records including the much-sampled track Double Dutch from the 1983 album Duck Rock.
He continued to be involved in the culture and arts scene up until his death.

McLaren was the greatest spoofer of the greatest spoof band ever.

Johnny Rotten aka John Lydon had solid Irish connections and was well in with the Lizzys and Horslips lads of the time even though they moved in different circles.

Off stage Rotten was John Lydon, a lad who like a few pints and a bit of craic.

Cameras on he was Johnny Rotten, you ma's worst nightmare and fcuk the Queen.

Shamrock Shore has thumbs up

Guru from Gang Starr

Keith Elam (July 17, 1961[1] April 19, 2010),[2][3] better known by his stage name Guru, was an American emcee and member of the hip-hop duo Gang Starr, along with DJ Premier. He was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts.[4] The name Guru is a backronym that stands for Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal and the less-often used God is Universal; he is the Ruler Universal, which are both references to the teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths.
