Former U.K. politician George Galloway is writing a musical about the life of British soul singer DUSTY SPRINGFIELD.
The revered peace campaigner has teamed up with fellow Scot Ron MCKay to research the tragic star's life for new project Dusty.
In a post on his Daily Record blog, Galloway explains his musical will tackle Springfield's battles with drug and alcohol addiction and her lesbianism.
He writes, "It will not be just about her musical talent but her whole journey through life, her sexuality. It won't shirk from any of that."
