Who was the real lady behind the black mascara and backcombed hair? This is the story that she never had the chance to tell herself because, nearly two years after her first battle with breast cancer, the disease returned to take her life in 1999.When the end finally came, the music business descended into mourning, tributes flooded in from all over the world, ''The Daily Telegraph'' front page announced 'Dusty Springfield dies on day she was to get OBE' and her Majesty The Queen was reported to be 'deeply saddened'. Dusty Springfield was the very heart and soul of British music.
