In 1966, Dusty Springfield shared a bill with drumming genius/borderline psychotic Buddy Rich at the Basin Street East club in New York City. Rich was resentful because Dusty's name made top billing on the marquee of the club. But this wasn't what set Buddy off. It was when Dusty asked Buddy if she could borrow a few musicians from Buddy's band. Buddy flipped out, supposedly saying, "you fucking broad, who do you think you fucking are, bitch?" No shrinking violet, Dusty full-fisted punched Buddy in the face.
