What a big difference, from the days when you could just sit like a lump on a log and perform your actual art, as compared to know where you have to prance about, even get suspended by cables and whirled around the theater.

Banging Mick Jagger does not an artist make.

She looked like she was trying to keep her face still during the parts she wasn't singing.

At least she wasn't trying to be a Big Shot.

In a way it did; banging Mick and the drug arrests and the bad press and the heroin addiction turned her into the woman who made Broken English, which is a masterpiece.

Of course, when I think of Marianne Faithfull, I think first of the song she did with Metallica.

shagging a guy who took the Wall Street Leap of Faith and then dedicating a song to him was a nice touch, too.

Fair enough, but she's still no Nico:

That's a particularly good version of that song; as a solo artist her backing bands were usually pretty terrible.

No, I can't explain Nico beyond the fact that she had John Cale.

I can't believe she is functioning at all. Her resistance to opiates had to be sky high by that time. I was in Europe in the early 80's, and it was just awash in cheap heroin.

The Taylor Swift version is much better.
 
2013-12-29 10:20:52 AM
To hear her post Mick Jagger Voice, listen to Broken English or the Metallica song, The Memory Remains. Her pretty voice did not last long.
 
2013-12-29 10:24:33 AM
I read Faithfull's autobiography,she's a smart,talented,somewhat troubled woman and much more interesting than Mick Jagged ever was.
 
2013-12-29 10:28:39 AM
Jaggy taught her well

She attributes that rumor to fat old perves in England's justice system who liked to fantasize about what went on inside the homes of rock stars.

"sister morphine" ain't half bad either, and "The Ballad of Lucy Jordan" is pretty good too, but my personal favorite from my collection is her signing "I Got You Babe" as a duet with a very young David Bowie live on some BBC chat show.  I miss kazaa...

Her episode of the geneology show "Who Do You Think You Are?" was really fascinating http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjgxNeYJ02c her mother was a cabaret dancer in Berlin during the Weimar Republic but was 1/2 Jewish so she had to stop when Hitler came to power. Her grandfather was an Austrian and high ranking retired military officer who fought in the resistance in Vienna. Lots of horrible things happened to her mother when the Russian army liberated Vienna.

How about a video clip of her getting herself off on the motorcycle?

"Lucy Jordan" is on the Broken English album; the entire thing is a masterpiece, and worth listening to from beginning to end.

Yeah, could you imagine a pop star like Miley Cyrus recording something like "Sister Morphine" today?

Pretty good comparison
/minus drug addictions, farking celebrities for fame and money, etc
 
2013-12-29 12:19:46 PM
Cocaine (well, cocaine and laryngitis) absolutely wrecked her voice
 
2013-12-29 01:20:22 PM
The early Disney robotics sucked.
 
2013-12-29 01:30:49 PM
She did an astonishingly great live album called "Blazing Away"

Her versions of "Working Class Hero" and "Sister Morphine" still gives me chills.

CarnySaur: The Taylor Swift version is much better.


Rumor has it that Mick tried to slip her some old man tongue .

may i introduce to you the best singer in the world.........Mick Jagger!!!

signed Epstein's mom

She's not only survived Mick Jagger & drugs - she's living with breast cancer.

Here's hoping she's got so many birthdays left in her.

Quivering with stage fright, actually.
 
2013-12-29 02:28:54 PM
A better version, Marianne backed by traffic noises in the company of Anna Karina and Jean-Pierre Leaud in Godard's Made in USA.
 
2013-12-29 02:49:06 PM
I saw her in the operetta  The Black Rider.

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Rider#Productions

Her voice was no longer sweet, but she was playing the part of Pegleg/old Nick/the Devil, so it worked. She could project enough to fill the hall
 
2013-12-29 03:33:58 PM
She's still performing. Saw here here in Louisiana last year. Great show.

AMonkey'sUncle: How about a video clip of her getting herself off on the motorcycle?


How about a link?
 
2013-12-29 08:24:02 PM
After The Who doing "A Quick One While He's Away," her bit on the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus (singing "Something Better") may be my favorite thing on it. Can't find anything but an audio-only clip unfortunately.

Agreed. It's a freaking classic. Also like "Brain Drain", "Witches Song" and her version of JL's Working Class Heroes.

"Why'd Ya Do It?" is one for the ages.

I remember being in a record shop when that came out and due to the airplay Broken English was getting I was considering buying the album but was hesitating because I wasn't sure about the rest of the album.

Then I noticed the "parental advisory" sticker on it which sealed the deal for me.

So thanks, Tipper, I guess.
