Hi. I thought Marianne had died for a moment until I checked. She was my pin up in another life long ago. I carried a portrait photo of her in my wallet torn out of NME.
"You don’t have to be the character. I can really come at it as I am. A working artist, that’s what I am." (Marianne Faithfull, from interview below)http://www.avclub.com/article/marianne-faithfull-59616https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-M2NWmYU1gkI'm in the process of reading The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, by Lewis Hyde. Marianne Faithfull and John Lennon fit right in to that meditation. Thank you.
Thanks for reading and listening, Litehiker.Yes, I remember reading that book, Am. I see I wrote about it here:http://solitary-walker.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/abundance-of-gift-in-motion.html
Just found your blog through Sabine. I think we share some similar sensibilities. I adore Broken English and this is one of my favorite songs from it. I love the Lennon version as well. It'll cut your heart out.
Welcome, Ms Moon... I remember so well first hearing 'Broken English'... I love all the tracks... and, of course, the Lennon version too...
