Malcolm McLaren shot to fame as the man who guided punk group the Sex Pistols into the pop charts in the 1970s. He had already become a fixture on the London punk scene after opening a shop selling fetish clothing with his then-partner Vivienne Westwood.
The Pistols, whose debut single Anarchy in the UK was released in 1976, hit the headlines when band members swore on Bill Grundy's TV show. The band's controversial image saw them fired by both EMI and A&M record companies.
During the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, McLaren was arrested after a boat trip down the River Thames for the Sex Pistols to perform their version of God Save The Queen - which was banned by the BBC - as they passed the Houses of Parliament.
The band broke up at the end of a US tour in January 1978 amid accusations of mismanagement. But McLaren went on to create his own musical projects, releasing the first of his albums, Duck Rock, in 1983.
After retreating from the music scene, McLaren dabbled in politics and in 1999 toyed with the idea of entering the race to be mayor of London. A free bicycle for every household and a ban on cars on Sundays were some of his policy ideas.
In 2007, McLaren intended to make an appearance on the reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, but pulled out after branding the show "fake".
Since news broke of McLaren's death, aged 64, tributes have poured in. Music journalist Jon Savage said: "Without Malcolm McLaren there would not have been any British punk. What he did with fashion and music was extraordinary. He was a revolutionary."
