Born: Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien in Hampstead, London, England

Paul Howes is the foremost authority on Dusty Springfield's professional accomplishments and will hopefully one day lend his pen to this site. His book "The Complete Dusty Springfield" is the ultimate resource for Dusty's fans and those who wish to learn from her recorded legacy, and he dutifully runs the fanzine "The Dusty Springfield Bulletin" from the U.K. A few Dusty biographies exist, the most respected would likely be Lucy O'Brien's, while Vicki Wickham and Penny Valentine penned a more personal, though controversial, account. Dusty tribute sites are a valuable resource as well: do a web search under (you guessed it) "Dusty Springfield tribute sites". Hopefully one day soon these comments of mine will be removed and replaced by a suitable tribute from a notable source. Dusty is admired in every corner of the music business for her singular contribution to the art of popular singing, and has amassed one of the most earnest and grateful fan bases of any popular singer.
