Gruff-voiced diva and counter-cultural national treasure Faithfull draws from her 40-year-plus recording career for Yoko Ono's Meltdown festival. Having survived the '60s and life with Mick Jagger, a period spent living rough in Soho as a heroin addict and successful surgery to treat breast cancer in 2006, she's got a few tales to tell and songs to sing. Tonight she's joined by renowned American jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, who first worked with Faithfull on her 1987 album 'Strange Weather'.
