Turns out Les Molloy, who the British media had thought was McLaren's agent, mistakenly told the Associated Press that McLaren had died in New York. McLaren's son, Joe Corre, has since clarified his father passed away in Switzerland--and that Molloy was no longer McLaren's agent and not authorized to speak for the McLaren family.

The storefront later changed its name several times (Sex; Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die; Seditionaries), but both the Sex Pistols and New York Dolls would often wear Westwood's flamboyant clothing. McLaren and Westwood's son, Joseph Ferdinand Core, later helped co-found lingerie brand Agent Provocateur.
McLaren's body will be flown back to North London, and will be laid to rest at Highgate Cemetery.
And now? We're just waiting for some choice comments by Johnny Rotten, who's set to bring PiL (Public Image Limited) to Coachella--Rotten was once quoted as saying "Let's just say that if Malcolm breathes, it's too much for me to stomach."

"For me Malc was always entertaining, and I hope you remember that. Above all else he was an entertainer and i will miss him, and so should you."
