Hundreds of fans lined the streets of Camden to pay their final tributes to Malcolm McLaren yesterday as a funeral procession for the musical and cultural icon made its way through the borough.
In a carriage drawn by four horses, McLaren's coffin was taken down Camden High Street shortly before 2pm, emblazoned with the motto "Too fast to live, too young to die."
Following in tow was a double-decker bus with the destination Nowhere, ridden by mohawked fans holding T-shirts bearing McLaren's manifesto Cash from chaos and blaring out music as it made its way through crowds of captivated onlookers.

Some of those in attendance were too young to remember the bands managed by McLaren - the Sex Pistols and the New York Dolls among them - but many had seen them multiple times and even met the great man himself.
The coffin was taken to Highgate Cemetery where McLaren was laid to rest.
