The American Malcolm McLaren, minus the coveted fame and name recognition. He has bungled his way through the history of rock and roll. A node-sized list: promo man for the fledgling Motown Records; produced the 1960 novelty hit "Alley Oop"; worked for Andrew Loog Oldham, and with Soft Machine and The Modern Lovers; sang on Freak Out; co-wrote songs done by The Byrds, The Who, Kiss, and Led Zeppelin; svengalied The Runaways and lesser-knowns. I've run out of space.
