Robin has paid tribute to the late Dusty Springfield by unveiling a blue plaque at her former West London home.
Springfield, who died in 1999 aged 59, lived at 38-40 Aubrey Walk in Kensington from 1968 to 1972.
The Heritage Foundation had originally installed a plaque on the property back in 2001. Unfortunately it “disappeared” during renovation works earlier this year!
Unveiling the replacement plaque, Robin – 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.
I don’t think there will ever be anyone that could take the place of Dusty Springfield.

Speaking about his recent illness, Robin said: “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.”
