In Memoriam: Malcolm McLaren
The great music manager, promoter, artist Malcolm McLaren passed away earlier this week. I paid tribute to Malcolm by giving the character David his last name in Conquering Venus. In 1995 - the year the novel is set -- McLaren released the brilliant album Paris, a homage to the city featuring Catherine Denueuve and Francois Hardy. He also composed the masterpiece "Madame Butterfly," based on the opera. Both videos are here. Watch, enjoy, remember. Thanks for the inspiration, MM.
