Singer and actress Marianne Faithfull has been at the center of many great periods in rock history. Coaxed into a singing career by Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham in 1964, she had a big hit in both Britain and the U.S. with her version of 'As Tears Go By' which predated the Rolling Stones version by a year. Over time, Faithfull's fragile voice has been heard in many different genres, from orchestral pop to standards and experimental rock. But through her many trials and tribulations, Marianne Faithfull has managed to keep her honest and truthful persona upfront in her recorded work, including her latest, 'Before the Poison.'
