New York Dolls pay tribute
The New York Dolls have paid tribute to Malcolm McLaren, who suddenly passed away from his fight with cancer on April 8th.
The legendary rock band from New York City, say that they will dedicate their classic song “Jet Boy” to McLaren when they play their only UK concert at London KOKO on Monday April 19th.
“Malcolm McLaren was such a marvelous amalgam of exuberation, sensuality, culture and literacy, says NY Dolls’ lead singer David Johansen. “All of this was salted with the essential recognition of his own rascality. He was the perfect preservation against stuffiness and a lack of humanity. We are going to miss him terribly.”
“Malcolm opened up the doors for punk music around the world,” adds Sylvain Sylvain, the Dolls’ original founding guitarist. “He was a visionary and took what was going on in New York City and made it global. He was a massive influence on everyone who ever had a punk shop or a punk band. His passing represents the final chapter in an era when music was exciting.”
