Sex Pistols' manager to be laid to rest in Highgate cemetery

Malcolm McLaren gets send off from Camden crowd.

MALCOLM McLAREN was given a big send off by hundreds of fans today, as the punk Godfather's funeral procession wound its way through the streets of Camden on its way to Highgate cemetery.

In keeping with rock 'n' roll swindler's sloganeering style, the cortege carried a couple of one-liners designed to cement his rebel image.

On the coffin were the words, "Too fast to live, too young to die", while flowers on one of the official cars were shaped into the phrase, "Cash from chaos".

Music blaring out from the funeral march included Sid Vicious's versions of My Way and Something Else.

Among the mourners were a few famous names from the punk/New Wave heyday, such as Adam Ant, Bob Geldof and McLaren's former partner, Vivienne Westwood.

"I hope his grave becomes like Jim Morrison's or Serge Gainsburg's and all those others," Westwood’s son, Ben, told the NME.

Malcolm McLaren died aged 64 on 8 April after succumbing to malignant mesothelioma, a rare type of cancer.
