“Malcolm Robert Andrew McLaren (22 January 1946 – 8 April 2010) was an English impresario, visual artist, performer, musician, clothes designer and boutique owner, notable for combining these activities in an inventive and provocative way. He is best known as a promoter and manager of bands the New York Dolls and the Sex Pistols.” (Wikipedia)
At the time most probably the above is not how Malcolm McLaren would have been described; the instigator and purveyor of punk more likely. Interviews show how alternative he and the Sex Pistols really were. Wikipedia reveals the breadth of his talent and ability.

We deliver a world-class programme direct from leading artists and performers at the peak of their practice.
