....Marianne Faithfull Interview 1968....

Comments from Youtube

nahnni : It's so fascinating to listen to this interview.  When one is so very young, one feels so very wise and so intensely idealistic.  Even death is but a dream.  Then, one grows older and into wisdom (hopefully), and looking back, wonders what that was all about.  Little did Marianne know at the time of this interview that hell hadn't even begun to open up its gates...and she would survive.  What an amazing woman.

Andrew Stuart Brown : Why be so quick to beat up a 21-year-old 60s girl, nor to comment harshly what time has done to her? Time is waiting for us all, and it gives out its beatings with a free hand.

Willie Finn : can see what jagger saw in her...good talker. beauty.

Galericulus : To MrSmith6000.  The reason Marianne Faithfull and Brian Jones sound so similar is because they were both brought up in Middle Class British Homes and both had a good education.  This contrasts with the majority of pop stars of the 1960s, who were predominantly Working Class and speak the way most people associate with the Rock and Roll and Music Industry.  If you are unfamiliar with the British Class system, which was then even more rife than it is now, you will take for granted these differences, but if you are unaware of them they are probably somewhat puzzling.  In those days, all the managers, company owners, Politicians and Professional people spoke with the Middle Class accent you noticed in Brian and Marianne.  All the blue-collar working men of the time spoke with the accent you're more familiar with, or regional accents like Liverpool, Newcastle, Cockney or the Midlands.  The music industry of the 1960s was very much a Class Revolution in Britain, and this is a point often overlooked today.  Intelligent working class people with a bit of musical talent and something to say comprised the majority of people in the music industry then.  Brian and Marianne were two of the earliest Middle Class people to get into popular music in Britain at that time.  But they were followed by groups like Pink Floyd Genesis and Yes, who were very competent musicians and played firstly psychedelic and then Progressive Rock.  These were followed by groups like Queen, all of whom I believe have PhDs under their belts before starting their music careers in case the music didn't work out for them.

anne853 : Wow.

skitsy17 : That tinsel Disney pop tune voice of some early stuff wasn't the real MARES voice. This is real voice. That angel high range ain't HER NATURAL SELF, IT'S PRODUCTION

skitsy17 : I was in London for a tour of UK and Scotland from NJ for a month, turned into 6 wks, got to stay free a block and half from Oakley Bridge over Thames, Oakley St, stones throw from Cheyne Walk where Mare & Mick lived. It was home of Sir Thomas More! Wall in front and side (4 feet high old brick) built by him! Saved n j family on vacation (lawyer from n j posted to London and family from getting all electronics stolen, happened every time they went on 2 wk holiday). Their friend took me to house

skitsy17 : 1967 uh her voice was not changing I think. Certainly the swinging Kings Road and Oakley Street Bridge area (I stayed by Cheney Walk in F

Zack Aild : drugs and shit ruined her amazing voice. so, she end up singing for metallica.

Zardoz Z : "I've stop..." all smiles, no LSD for me. Reminds me of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his reply to being asked if he ever took steroids for body building, replying "No" with a big grin.

Enrique Espinosa : speak Marianne we need to hear more from you ! U !

First Impressions : Her fascination with death became apparent the following year when she almost took her own life in July 1969. That was probably the final straw for MJ as an unstable partner would not be good for Mick Jagger PLC.

christopher sapsford : She is lovely,so honest,adorarable.

Enrique Espinosa : wow your sitting on " (the) me the bud's !
