March 2 marks the 15th "anniversary" of the death of Dusty Springfield. I once saw her perform in concert and rave-reviewed her. She called the newspaper to thank me. I've never seen a better "live" performance. One of the few "troubled" stars to've finally landed back on her feet. Also the first to cop to being BI, and also to speak out against apartheid in South Africa. AND. . despite her so-called "difficult" temperament in the recording studio, she sure did turn out a lot of great sides. Hundreds. Not a lemon in the lot. See Dennis Cooper's blog today for David Ehrenstein's tribute to Dame Dusty.
