What can I say about Marianne Faithful that hasn’t been said before? Her brilliant career has been long over-shadowed by her tumultuous relationship with Mick Jagger, as well as her struggles with heroin addiction and anorexia. She somehow managed to turn her hardships into triumphs, solidly redefining her image as an accomplished musician and actress. She possesses a distinctively seasoned voice that Faithfull admits is the result of every whiskey she has ever drunk, every cigarette she has ever puffed. “My voice is loaded with time, mature like brie cheese,” she has said. Her superb renditions of Broken English, The Ballad of Lucy Jordan, and As Tears Go By will forever hold a place in my heart.
