Sally Oldfield Quotes
My childhood, as well as that of my brothers, was very troubled. My mother had significant difficulties and as a result we grew up with a very pressured life experience. I was ultimately educated in a Catholic convent and it was a very sheltered environment, with uniforms, curfews, and the like. But, I think, the negative experience became a creative fuel, not only for myself but also for my brothers. Then when I attended Bristol University I began reading literature and the philosophers, getting exposure to all of these different areas that I hadn't had any prior experience with.
Marianne and I were partners in crime, if you will. Being in a convent we weren't allowed to mingle with the boys at Leighton Park, the local boys' school. Actually the more daring of us -- Marianne and I-- had to find ways around that, and became quite innovative at it. Marianne shortly thereafter became involved with (Andrew) Loog Oldham, which led to her recording "And Tears Go By." We have an interesting friendship, not really maintaining consistent contact But still connecting occasionally.
