Great voice. Dusty did much better in the US with half a dozen top 20 hits.

Throw in Lulu. Oh me oh my. Love that song. Plus To Sir with Love.

Phew, you don't half pong Potts

oh Lulu could be very good - a good rocker and she could belt out a very bluesy feel.

The story of the Dusty in Memphis recording is an interesting one. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Thread would be improved by suitable and tasteful puns. For example, Christopher Lee died.

He's not really dead, he's just resting. He'll be up and about come nightfall.

That is a cross-generational "sigh"

David Bowie died. The local news here had someone who wasn't even close to age 25 explain through a scan of tweets what he meant to the entertainment industry.

I don't even know him that well, why ask an early 20s man who wasn't even an idea in his parents' heads when he had his first hit.

McCartney already died in 1966 and was replaced by Billy Shears.

Everyone knows the only Beatles still alive are Ringo and John Lennon.

Mick Jagger - I remember him playing in Superbowl 2005. He said, "I could have played this," (Satisfaction), "in Superbowl 1, but good things come to those who wait."

I never really knew her. I knew her via my parents who only mentioned about the astrology.
She was Ronnie's backbone and one of the most high profile first lady's ever
