Marianne Faithfull: Ses Liaisons Dangereuses

Mitchell Cohen, Creem, February 1982

"I'VE ALWAYS KNOWN who I was," she says in a raspy, Bette Davis voice. "Whether I could achieve to express that to everyone else was another matter. I am who I am. I'm confident enough now to show myself. Perhaps it took this long – I've thought of it before – it's as if I've been staying undercover. You know, how animals keep to the trees and bushes, if they might get killed. I often think that's what I was doing until very recently."
