He produced some great music I play it regularly but it pains me to say this as a person he was truly dreadful.

“Lana Clarkson was a warm, compassionate, kind, loving woman who would be 58 years old now. Her energy, brightness and love of life have sustained her family since her murder 18 years ago in 2003,"--Donna Clarkson (her mother).

there's a very thin line between genius and insanity
A series of gold records, a collection of ostentatious wigs and a system of music production still used to this day... forever tainted by a single act of pure evil.

"Wacko Killer" is the best description for this guy.

He left a great legacy in his music but, for some, all they will know about him is the murder that put him in prison. Pity.

I have a distinct memory in the 60’s of seeing an image of Phil Spector for the time the same day that I was in the audience for a Bob Barker game show!
BBC described him as "talented but flawed".

Talk about understatement of the century - being a convicted murderer is a pretty big 'flaw'.

It'd be like describing Jimmy Saville as 'a bit touchy-feely' :o/

Rest in Peace Phil Spector. Just kidding.👹
@ The use of the wording quote:"...alcohol and drugs..." What does a substance, that harms and, depending on duration and frequency of misuse, destroys vital organs and/or results in early death, causes disruption of social life, on a personal, community or even society level, qualify as "not being a drug," other than the incompetence of the authors of this video on this subject?

I find it strange how people are demonising Phil Spector worse than demonising the likes of someone like Jimmy Savile or Gary Glitter, Yes Phil was a murderer but the level of crime which is worse than him which people ignore is crazy.
RIP Phil. Why did he never write a book on The Beatles? That would have been something special to read. He produced great albums such as Let It Be by The Beatles (what a snub to George Martin), All Things Must Pass by George Harrison, and Plastic Ono Band by John Lennon.
