Bee Gees star unveils Dusty plaque

Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has paid tribute to the late Dusty Springfield as he unveiled a blue plaque at her former London home.

Springfield, who died in 1999, lived at 38-40 Aubrey Walk in Kensington from 1968 to 1972, while she was at the height of her fame.

A plaque was installed outside the property by the Heritage Foundation in 2001 but "disappeared" during renovation works earlier this year.

Unveiling a replacement plaque, Gibb, president of the Heritage Foundation, said: "She could do no wrong. It's got nothing to do with the sound or production, it was her - and that is the measure of greatness. She will be great forever."

He said the plaque was "incredibly important" to honour her. "She is probably the greatest female popular singer in the modern pop rock era - since 1963, there's been no one to match her. This includes the United States as well - they can't come close to her. Today they just pose as singing. She was the genuine article.

"I don't think there will ever be anyone that could take the place of Dusty Springfield."

Gibb, 61, suffered a health scare last month and was forced to cancel a string of dates in Brazil.

He said on Sunday: "I'm over my worst. These things happen to us from time to time but I'm fit as a fiddle right now, thank God."
