Marianne Faithfull

Marianne Faithfull (born December 29, 1946) is a British singer who began her career in 1964 with As Tears Go By, a song written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. She soon began dating Jagger and released a series of successful singles, including This Little Bird, Summer Night and Sister Morphine.

After breaking up with Jagger, Faithfull briefly stopped recording and nursed a drug addiction. She returned in 1979 with Broken English, a critical smash hit that did not achieve much success in mainstream markets. This pattern continued throughout the 1980s, with Strange Weather (1987) being her most important album of the decade.

Faithfull sung backup vocals on Metallica's song The Memory Remains from their 1996 album Load.
