The NEW YORK DOLLS have paid tribute to former SEX PISTOLSmanager Malcolm McLaren, who suddenly passed away from his fight with cancer on April 8.
The legendary rock band from New York City says that it will dedicate its classic song "Jet Boy" to McLaren when the group plays its only U.K. concert at London Koko on Monday, April 19, 2010.
"He was a visionary and took great pride on what was going on in New York City and had the ability to make it global. His passing represents the final chapter in an era when music was exciting & costumes were in style."

After working together on the NEW YORK DOLLS' influential debut in 1973, the group reunited this winter with producer Todd Rundgren to record the new LP at Rundgren's studio on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. "Cause I Sez So" features 11 original compositions and a new version of "Trash", which was on the band's 1973 debut album. "It was amazing working with Todd again, and I think we were able to evoke the special sound of our first album and drag it by the hair into the present," says frontman David Johansen. "Cause I Sez So" will be released on May 5 via the Atco label (which has been specially re-launched) through Warner Brothers.
