I always had a mad crush on Marianne from her own singing to Mick Jagger's girlfriend and the Stones entourage to 'Girl on a Motorbike' to being a junkie living on a wall in Soho! To Lucy Jordan and her own later work. Still do! She is amazingly resilient to the madness life throws at us.  
Read her autobiography it's a wonder . . . . . . found this here. . . . .thanks isabel
