Malcolm Mclaren, the legendary manager of the punk band the Sex Pistols, has lost his battle with mesothelioma at the age of 62.
Mclaren was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that is primarily associated with exposure to asbestos, in October 2009. He sought treatment in a London clinic, but lost his battle only six moths after the diagnosis.
Mclaren’s doctors say that he was probably exposed to asbestos during the remodeling of his clothing store “Sex.” During the remodeling, the cieling tiles were broken and scattered like debris across the floor. Neither Mclaren or the remodeling crew knew that asbestos was present in the tiles.
