I just finished watching the above posted BBC documentary on Marianne and now i feel heavily inspired. This cannot go without sharing! The documentary is interessting for those who know and love Marianne as well as those who are just discovering her.. definetly worth checking out!
Marianne is a rock and roll icon and drug addiction survivor. She was basically the Courtney Love of the 60s, but a British upperclass dough-faced version. She became famous for her singing career and for being the stylish girlfriend of Mick Jagger. To this day she continues to inspire many a star and civilian with her style from those wild times. For me she epitomizes 60’s to 70’s style, attitude and fashion. Years ago i took her biography (Faithfull by David Dalton) out of my mom’s bookcase, skipped school and read it in the park one afternoon. Her life has been one crazy rollercoaster, but she’s one of the ones who lived to tell.. and who is still going stong. She continues to release albums and recently has toured around the world and also has collaborated with greats such as Jarvis Cocker and many more. I strongly recommend reading one of her autobiograpies; Faithfull(1994) or Memories, Dreams and Relections(2007).
She is and was one awesome lady!
