Producer Spector Arrested for Murder

Misc : Producer Spector Arrested for Murder - macmusicLegendary record producer Phil Spector was arrested on February 3 in connection with the murder of woman at his California mansion. The victim was identified as actress Lana Clarkson, 40.

Police said Clarkson had small roles in Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Scarface, and made a living playing Xena-like warrior women in such B-flicks as Barbarian Queen and Amazon Woman on the Moon.

Spector, the 62-year-old hit maker, has been known for a volatile temper and a history of pulling pistols on the likes of John Lennon and the Ramones. Spector has posted $1 million bail and has been released.

The Bronx-born Spector co-wrote such standards as the Crystals' "Da Doo Ron Ron," the Ronettes' "Be My Baby" and the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." Spector created the revolutionary "wall of sound" effect that involved overdubbing scores of musicians to create a full, dramatic sound. He used the technique while producing such mega-selling albums as John Lennon's Imagine and the last Beatles album, Let It Be.

Although he was known as a genius in the studio, Spector also was accused of being an out-of-control party boy and a cheat. The Ronettes, which included his ex-wife Ronnie Greenfield, sued Spector for allegedly cheating them out of royalties.

Spector, a member of the Rock and roll Hall of Fame, has hired celebrity defense lawyer Robert Shapiro, whose clients have included O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson, to represent him.
