11. Later Life
In 1995, she was diagnosed with cancer and sadly passed away on March 2, 1999 at 59 years old. Legendary blues-rock pioneer Al Kooper describes Dusty’s legacy: "In many ways Dusty Springfield was equal to Billie Holiday or Frank Sinatra in the interpretation of a ballad. There is no one in sight to challenge her at this time."
