Remembering Malcom Mclaren R.I.P

I was bummed about hearing of the early death of Malcom Mclaren. For those don't know, he was a very influential person in expanding both the Punk Scene and later the hip hop scene while both were in their infancy. He managed the Sex Pistols, The Clash, and the New York Dolls and later opened a Punk, clothing store in England. He was there from the start and history will remember him fondly. Many younger people may not be aware that he sang Buffalo Gals and was one of the first artist to feature breakdancing from New York in a video when very few outside of New York were even aware of "b-boying". Even Emminem used the "round the outside" portion of the chorus in his song. I'm posting the video here so that you can truly appreciate the wonderful video as it captures a magical time in hip hop history, I also have a link where you can read about his life and times.
