It was one of my goals when I got into the radio industry was to get more of the Sex Pistols music on local radio. With the boom in alternative stations in the 90's, there was at least some recognition by the industry of this groundbreaking group. Sadly, the radio industry felt country music and right-wing talk radio would make more money. WRONG!!! That is one of the reasons radio is in the financial pickle it is today.
The man who guided the Sex Pistols flash fire career, along with Bow Wow Wow and the New York Dolls, Malcolm McLaren has died of cancer in Switzerland at age 64. Here is the BBC story.
