The Clash's former manager argues during Malcolm McLaren's funeral - Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Former Clash manager Bernie Rhodes caused a scene at Malcolm McLaren's funeral at Highgate Cemetery, London last week (April 22) by shouting at mourners on two separate occasions, it has emerged. Rhodes initially walked down the aisle uninvited and exclaimed: "If we're not careful we're going to turn Malcolm into John Lennon, into a saint. Malcolm was no saint." Later, during a reading by McLaren's former partner Vivienne Westwood, Rhodes again interrupted proceedings. "This is about Malcolm, not you!" he is said to have shouted at the fashion designer. "You're part of the establishment now!" In reply, Westwood apparently sighed and said: "I thought this might happen," before calling Rhodes by his first name of "Bernie". He then shouted back: "It's Bernard! Bernard Rhodes!" (Observer).
