Steve Jones Thanks Malcolm McLaren For Hooker and Heroin
Our favorite former Sex Pistol (and yours), LA DJ Steve "Jonesy" Jones (come back to commercial radio! please! we miss you!) has just issued his statement on the death of Malcolm McLaren:
"I was upset when I heard the news, as I've always had a soft spot for Malcolm. I knew him since I was 17 before the Pistols formed--I used to drive him around in Vivienne Westwood's car to the tailors in London in the days of the 'Let It Rock' clothing store. Malcolm was definitely the Brian Epstein of punk--without him it wouldn't have happened the way it did. I stayed friends with him throughout the years despite some of our differences. He came on 'Jonesy's Jukebox' a couple of years ago, and that's a good memory. But my fondest memory of Malcolm, and I loved the guy, was his birthday gift to me when I turned 21--he got me a hooker and some heroin."
--Steve Jones, 4/9/2010
At least he didn't call him a fucking rotter.
