Well, she's lived the life a bit, what with years of heroin addiction and living on the streets and the whole rock'n'roll lifestyle, so I hope she recovers OK. I still think of her as this utterly beautiful pale and wasted vision drifting through the streets of London in the video to The Ballad of Lucy Jordan.

SHOCKING NEWS. You'd almost think she's more important than the rest of us.

Why? Are you a well-known public figure who has the coronavirus?

I don't put any special attention on the rich or famous who get sick in this Covid-19 environment than I would any one of you reading this. Should I feel extra woke because she's "somebody"?

Thing is that I and many other people who know who Marianne Faithfull is are interested in reading that she's ill with coronavirus. If it comes to you or me getting infected, though, which I hope never happens to either of us, the cruel reality is that not so many people are going to be interested. Doesn't mean we're overall less important than Marianne, just that we're pretty much relatively anonymous - at least I am, although for all I know you could be a global superstar posting anonymously on JT.

Should I feel extra woke because she's "somebody"?

"Woke"? Woke has nothing to do with anything on this page.
