Phil Spector Has Died

They say he was a murderer and a world-class son of a bitch, and maybe he was, but a part of America died today that isn't ever coming back again.

Grammy-winning music producer Phil Spector dies of natural causes

Record producer Phil Spector is pictured around 1970.

(CNN)Music producer and convicted murderer Phil Spector died of natural causes on Saturday, according to a statement released by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

An official cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner for the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office at a later date.
Spector was sentenced to 19 years to life for the 2003 fatal shooting of actress Lana Clarkson. The actress was found slumped over in a chair at Spector's California mansion with a gunshot wound through the roof of her mouth.
Spector, who was from Bronx, New York, produced recordings by The Beatles, Ike and Tina Turner, Cher and the Ramones.
Creator of the "Wall of Sound" style, the influential producer formed the Teddy Bears and recorded the group's only hit, "To Know Him is to Love Him," while he was still in high school.

From what's been said and known about this man, he was a psycho.

The original sick genius of modern popular music. His talent came from a place of darkness, obsession, arrogance, anxiety and envy, but as an artist, he succeeded. As a person, he paid the price.

I'm sure this will affect Brian Wilson in many different ways.

So well-said.

Good riddance, the guy was sick. LaToya talked about escaping from his studio in her first book

If so, she was fortunate, that poor actress Lana Clarkson wasn't.

A brilliant artist... and an absolutely horrible human being

That’s always an artistic dilemma... great works of art can be created by awful people

Ronnie Spector was a fine, fast talking, Harlem woman... she was probably just after the bag originally, and got caught up and stuck with the wrong trick.
