The Great Rock n Roll Swindler Ronnie Biggs dies at age 84

The British train robber Ronnie Biggs, notable for the "Great Train Robery" in Britain in 1963 , have died of illness at the age of 84.

After Johnny Rottens departure in 1978 from the Sex Pistols, manager Malcolm McLaren worked for train robber Ronnie Biggs in his Brazilian exile to replace Rotten as the new singer. All this in the Julian Temple´s Movie the Great Rock n Roll swindle. Of course this was a publicity stunt aimed to provoke the British public.

However Mr Biggs did record a tune with what was left of the Sex Pistols, Steve Jones and Paul Cook, "No One is Innocent".

He also recorded a track with the German punk band Die Toten Hosen.
