I Miss the Old Days

Marianne Faithfull & Mick Jagger: 37 Pictures of the Grooviest Couple of the 1960s

Neither has aged that well, especially Mick.

Years of drug abuse blew out Marianne's voice (and pretty much destroyed her looks). She sounds like Lotte Leyna now. Meanwhile, yes, Mick looks fairly ravaged, but he's a golden boy compared to how Keith looks!

Mick still seems to have most of his voice. Marianne, while sounding like someone else, is still recording. The recordings generally get good reviews, too.

Jeff Meyerson said...

What's wrong with Lotte Lenya anyway?

Anyway, in my mind Marianne is always 50 years younger.

I do miss 1964.


Deb said...

Nothing's wrong with Lotte Lenya--in fact, Rosa Klebb is my favorite Bond girl--but when one once sang "As Tears Go By" and now you sound like, well, Rosa Klebb, it really is a case of how the mighty hath fallen.

They settled down, raised five kids, and there just was a biopic starring Mia Farrow and Dustin Hoffman a few years back...pity about his solo career after Brian Jones reasserted control of their band, but at least hers is still strong.
