SINGER Marianne Faithfull (pictured) is critically ill after a drugs overdose. Miss Faithfull, 22, has been in a coma for 36 hours. She arrived here in Sydney on Tuesday with Mick Jagger to begin making a film about the Australian outlaw Ned Kelly. [Jagger was the first person she saw after waking up six days later. Her first words to him were: ‘Wild horses couldn’t drag me away’, which inspired the Stones’ song Wild Horses.]
