Malcolm McLaren’s son to burn $7 million of punk memorabilia

Joe Corré, the son of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren and fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, says he will conduct a public, ceremonial burning of his personal collection of punk memorabilia — valued at $7 million. Corré says he’s protesting the official Year of Punk that’s been declared to celebrate the 40th anniversary of punk. “The Queen giving 2016, the Year of Punk, her official blessing is the most frightening thing I’ve ever heard,” says Corré. “Talk about alternative and punk culture being appropriated by the mainstream.” Corré is inviting other punk fans to add their own memorabilia to the pile he’ll set aflame on Nov. 26, the 40th anniversary of the Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the U.K.”
