By gbarton at Classic Rock

The New York Dolls have paid tribute to Malcolm McLaren, who suddenly passed away from his fight with cancer on April 8. “Malcolm McLaren was such a marvelous amalgam of exuberation, sensuality, culture and literacy,” says Dolls lead singer David Johansen.

“All of this was salted with the essential recognition of his own rascality. He was the perfect preservation against stuffiness and a lack of humanity. We are going to miss him terribly.”...

However, with the drivers slowly settling in and new technical director James Key joining from the boosted Force India team, Sauber is hoping for some strong results soon...
