    Another Day The Music Died

    You may be too young to realise or even acknowledge the significance, but in the passing today of Malcom McLaren

    BBC News - Former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren dies at 64

    BBC News - Obituary: Malcolm McLaren

    we've experienced another one of those days when something that defines us all and who we are, how we are, has been lost forever.

    Whatever your tastes in music, without McLaren and the Punk era he heralded, the world today would be so much more sterile and boring.

    A sad day, he was an absolute legend, and got away with making one of the most famous manufactured bands in the world, The Sex Pistols seem like an origional band!
