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"
RIP Mr M.
