From BBC News:

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 before it is buried in Highgate Cemetery.
