Punk Icon Mclaren Laid To Rest

Punk pioneer MALCOLM MCLAREN was given a fitting send-off on Thursday (22Apr10) - his funeral paid tribute to his anarchic lifestyle.
The former Sex Pistols manager died aged 64 at a clinic in Switzerland earlier this month (Apr10) after a battle with mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer often linked to asbestos exposure.
He was laid to rest following a church service in north London on Thursday - and dozens of friends, colleagues, and fans turned out to pay their respects.
MCLaren's body was taken to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage and his coffin was emblazoned with the words "Too fast to live, Too young to die" - the original name of his 1970s clothes shop where the Sex Pistols formed.
A double-decker bus with "Nowhere" as its destination - in imitation of the Sex Pistols' tour bus - was parked outside the venue, and many fans wore t-shirts printed with one of MCLaren's favourite slogans, "Cash from Chaos".
Mourners included the punk mogul's former partner Dame Vivienne Westwood and their son Joseph Corre, Bob Geldof, 1980s singer Adam Ant, and artists Tracey Emin and Dinos Chapman.
