Malcolm McLaren - gone but not forgotten

Since Malcolm's death, announced last night, many words and tributes have been written so there is little to add from such as myself who never knew the man.
All I can say is, I thank this man for shaking up music, fashion and art when I was growing up. For making the late 70's & early 80's an exciting time, when being different & creative was de rigueur. Times which I don't think have been seen since, youth culture today is so wet and bland in this country, where has all the creativity gone!

I will finish with a great quote from Malcolm:

"It is better to be a flamboyant failure than any kind of benign success"
