Malcom McLaren

Not sure what to say that hasn't been said already about  Mr. McLaren, but his name seems to keep popping up from time time. Whether it's the Sex Pistols (which he infamously created and then destroyed within a couple of years), or with Duck Rock, his solo record of production, and possibly my favorite LP of all time. When he passed a year or so ago, he left a vast body of music production credits, including Adam & The Ants, Bow Wow Wow, etc. (Rumor has it, he approached the Red Hot Chilli Peppers in 1984, wanting to produce them as a rockabilly parody band)

But Buffalo Gals will still be what I know him for, and what I consider to be my first introduction to Hip Hop.
