-- Malcolm McLaren, the London boutique owner who unleashed punk-rock pioneers the Sex Pistols on an unsuspecting world, has died of cancer at age 64, his girlfriend said Thursday.
Young Kim, McLaren's girlfriend, told CNN he died Thursday in Switzerland after a battle with mesothelioma. Kim, McLaren's son Joe Corre and Corre's half-brother, Ben Westwood, were with him when he died, she said. Both men are the sons of McLaren's onetime partner and lover, designer Vivienne Westwood.
"When we were young and I fell in love with Malcolm, I thought he was beautiful and I still do," Vivienne Westwood said in a written statement. "I thought he is a very charismatic, special and talented person. The thought of him dead is really something very sad."
