Forgotten beauties: Marianne Faithfull

Published: 29th Jul, 2009

Yes sir, she was a hip gal


There was a lot of free love floating around in the 1960s, much of it in the direction of Marianne Faithful, who basically did the Rolling Stones. She was even the inspiration behind Wild Horses, a fantastic record. With hair as feathery light and blonde as a Rod Stewart blow dry, she made her mark as a swinging hippy prancing around London, before spending the 1970s on the streets of Soho pumping nasty heroin into her withering body. As luck would have it, she has since cleaned herself up, and is now a whiskey voiced diva with a fine line in story telling. Still pretty cool, she has collaborated with David Bowie, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker, and the legendary reggae duo Sly and Robbie. What a gal.

Of course, we wouldn’t dare give the guys some excellent Marianne action, without a little something for the ladies. Below is Tom Selleck.


You’re welcome.
