Faithfull: an Autobiography by Marianne Faithfull
So, once, when I was pretty young, I was watching something on VH1 titled something like "The 100 Best Women in Rock and Roll" or whatever and #73 or something was Marianne Faithfull. I immediately fell completely in love with her, because I'm not stupid, and so I clearly remember Keith Richards being interviewed by VH1 and his comments about Marianne were very complimentary to her music. His comments were also complimentary toward Marianne's breasts. I'm paraphrasing, all these years later, but Keith said something along the lines of "She had the best tits in the business." So! Is this the only reason that I'm recommending her autobiography? Absolutely not. I love this book and practically consider it my bible. Marianne had an amazing life full of convent school, music, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, heroin addiction, and much, much more. Plus, she's funny and self-aware and is not afraid to spill a lot of dirt on a lot of famous figures from the 60s. I mean, this is the woman that inspired "Wild Horses." WILD HORSES. She's so epic. Read it.
