(…) When I was in Paris I was also fortunate enough to meet and write a song with Marianne Faithfull, which was such an honour. I arrived at her apartment, and I was immediately struck by how beautiful she is. We sat in her living room, which was full of fresh flowers, and I played guitar as we sang together. She’s so charming and talented, and has so many interesting stories to tell. I’m very proud of the song we wrote. (…)

Not my confession, but I quite agree. It also should be noted that Marianne’s “version” is the original, and that she wrote it. It was released as a single in 1969, but taken off of the shelves after three days because it was deemed inappropriate. For “Sticky Fingers” Keith and Mick simply put their names on the lyrics and hers was omitted for decades until she won a legal battle to at least get co-writing credit.
