Punk pioneer McLaren to be buried on Thursday
LONDON (Reuters) - British punk pioneer Malcolm McLaren's funeral will be held in London on Thursday, his son said on Monday. The former manager of the 1970s punk band Sex Pistols and ex-partner of fashion designer Vivienne Westwood died earlier this month aged 64 of a rare form of cancer.
"In celebration of Malcolm's life we are asking people to observe a minute of mayhem at midday on 22nd April," his son Joseph Corre said on the website of human rights charity Humanade, which he supports.
Corre, also founder of the Agent Provocateur lingerie brand, added: "Put on your favorite records and let it RIP!"
McLaren's funeral cortege will travel through the streets of northern London en route to his final resting place, previously announced as Highgate Cemetery.
