Something to let off steam about? Or share your Dusty thoughts.... This is your forum.






You didn't know me,
Yet you have touched my life.
I never met you,
But you are part of my life,
Your music and memories of you
Will be with me for the rest of my life.

Dear Simon

Thanks for your prompt list of the Voices of the Century!

I am so proud of our lady - what wonderful company she is keeping. We always knew, of course, that she was way up there ( No 1 in our books), but given the diverse range of tastes I think she has more than held her own.

This is a wonderful birthday present for her and I only wish she were here to celebrate. I've just listened to the "Good Times" CD and it reminded me (if I needed reminding) what an electric performer she was. What a voice!

Our lady was the best bar none,




I first met Dusty Springfield when she was doing a Show with Roy Orbinson in the Odeon Theatre in Manchester on Oxford Road in 60's. I can' t remember which year.
My girlfriend at the time was a member of Staff. She arranged for me to meet Dusty after the Show Backstage. We spoke for 5 minutes and she autographed a picture of herself and put her signature through her high her on the picture. I never got over Dusty Springfield since that day. I believe she was the greatest singer in this country ever. What a wonderful site you have created to honour her memory.

Yours sincerely
P. Geraghty

ON THIS SITE...........

  Thank you, Simon, for your wonderful Dusty Springfield website.

I, like millions of other Americans, was (and still am) a big fan of Dusty's. She was the greatest, as far as I'm concerned. Unfortunately, I never got to see her in person, but I do have a signed autograph from The Dusty Springfield Fan Club. Remember that?

You were so lucky to have been involved in her career for so many years and been such a great friend, too. I hope you realize we all envy you....with great fondness, of course.

I've been a fan of a lot of famous people in my day, and I've missed them when they passed away. When Dusty died, however, I REALLY felt it...just like I'd lost an old friend. I still feel sad today when I realize she's gone from us forever. There will always be a special spot reserved for her in my heart.

And now for a "wish" of mine. I "wish" somebody would produce a large "exact replica" poster of the "Dusty In Memphis" album cover. I'd give anything to have a huge framed copy of that beautiful picture for my living room. Maybe someday.

Okay, Simon, I've gone on long enough, so I'll close. I just wanted to add my two-cents' to your "comments" page and "thank you" for sharing your memories of Dusty with us. I will continue to pay tribute to Dusty and introduce her music to new fans
for the rest of my life. It's the least I can do for a lady who brought so much joy and happiness into my life.

Take care and all the best to you.

Just come on line. Think your website is fantasic. Really enjoying the "Simply Dusty" box set and the "Beautiful Soul". album.

Found the Serena Cross interview very interesting. Also that Vicki Wickham had backtracked on the book. On the one hand I enjoyed the book. but it was very negative regarding the person. It should have been more balanced.

Will keep looking up your site. Thank you
