Good evening, Netizens…
O how the once powerful and mighty have fallen.
This AP jail house picture of Phil Spector, sans his various wigs, pretty much says it all for me. This comes after several statements given to the news media by his wife that his wigs were actually his own hair, which one observes from this picture, is apparently not so.
Spector, known for his many elaborate hairstyles over the years, had to abandon his wigs after being sentenced last month to 19 years to life for killing actress Lana Clarkson. The prison system in California does not allow wigs excepting for “medical emergencies”.
In his heyday in the early and mid-1960s, Spector produced dozens of hits, including The Ronette’s “Be My Baby,” The Crystals’ “Da Doo Ron Ron” and The Righteous Brothers’ classic, “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin.’” Spector also worked on the Beatles album “Let It Be” and John Lennon’s album, “Imagine.”
My, how life has changed for Phil Spector.
