Annie Lennox: Just Think...

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, February 1988

...about the group she formed with the acid-drenched folk-strumming minstrel who proposed to her in a vegetarian restaurant. And the calamitous demise. And the legal wrangles. And the fresh start and the hits. And sudden dizzy highs, followed by dark and unfathomable lows. And the pressure to carry on. And the relentless spat with her father and the marriage that didn't last. It came to a crisis point with Annie Lennox, "but now I feel victorious. I've got my sanity!" she tells Phil Sutcliffe.
