Marianne Faithfull Sick of Rolling Stones Association

(Gibson) Sixties icon Marianne Faithfull is releasing a new album at the end of the month and has been talking music with Vanity Fair magazine. She's quick to state that she does not want to be constantly associated with her Rolling Stones years (she and Jagger dated in the mid-'60s).

She told the magazine: "I'm sick of talking about it. It would be great if people could see me as I see myself, which is as a working musician with an incredible arc of work. I've got such a body of work behind me. It's much more important than my mythical life. And my life is mythical. Most of it is a lie, the tabloid version of me. You know that. If you know my work, you must know that."

Her song "Eternity" samples a track that Rolling Stone Brian Jones produced, by the Master Musicians of Jakouka, and she says: "Brian's presence is perfect. You know, after years and years, all that [expletive] gets washed away. I just remember Brian the musician now." more on this story
