By SilentSinger VINE VOICE on 29 July 2016
Format: Paperback
I guess that the author, Ian Macleay tried to make this biography of the late Malcolm McLaren relevant by including certain contemporary references, but it was a bit clunky. The McLaren he writes about seems a driven, ruthlessly ambitious and downright unpleasant character, although I'm sure that there was more to the man than that? The insight into the punk scene of the mid to late 1970s was interesting and the author didn't hold back on the details of the unpleasant incidents which occurred during concerts - one poor girl losing an eye was particularly poignant.

There seemed to be a whole passage of time missing. He was working with bands in the 1980s and then ... he was dying. I guess that was because the publication was timed to celebrate McLaren's life after his demise?

This is awful. No research, just cobbled together in the days (minutes?) following Malcolm's death. Full of cliches, mistakes and non-sequiturs. Avoid. If I could give it no stars, I would.

By T. Satchwell VINE VOICE on 7 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is possibly a hasty publication which seems to have hit the shelves quite quickly after the death of
Talcy Malcy.
It's an easy read...and I guess it doesn't really go into to much depth about the man behind the mayhem.
For that I would recommend The Wicked Ways of Malcolm McLaren...various versions exist...but this has more depth more input I feel.
Anyway...a pretty good read....but....oh I have to be an anorak...Adam Ant was the bass player in Bazooka Joe (Pre Antz)...he is referred to several times as the singer
of that band.
There is a heavy emphasis on the Pistols era..and I guess this is what he was most "Infamous" for ...his later works seem to skimmed over really.
He was quite influential with Duck Rock and Madame Butterfly stuff..ok he wasn't a musician...but I guess the ideas man.
I'm no intellectual...so all the Situationist stuff is over my head...perhaps I should get another book....and get an education
Also got this a while back Impresario: Malcolm McLaren and the British New Wave and if you want to find out more ...it's all good

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't hit the mark 19 Jan. 2014
By d - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a big fan of Malcolm McLaren so I dove into this book with high expectations of reading about his work with during the "Waltz Darling" period. This book focused almost totally on his work with the "Sex Pistols" and his formative years... which was interesting. The second last chapter of this 17 chapter book jams all his post Sex Pistols work together. This equates to 17 pages cover the years between 1979 till 2010.

I didn't really enjoy the Author's style of writing. Any time someone of interest,crossed paths with McLaren, the Author would would write great detail about this person... and should that person be connected with someone of interest then the Author would write about them. It became very confusing and, while it showed how influential McLaren was, and how he was there at the beginning... it made it less clear.

If you are interested in the Sex Pistols then this book should be one to read. If you would like to know about Malcolm McLaren then this may be one to miss.
