While I Was Out
Phil Spector got arrested.
See this obituary of the victim of the murder Spector allegedly committed. From Joe Bob Briggs in Slate.
And while at Slate, there's this article on the weird world of the Wall-of-Sound man himself: "By the mid-'70s Spector was a deeply disturbed control freak, pulling guns on studio engineers, incarcerating artists in various style mansions. At different times he has terrified the wits out of people as different as John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, the Ramones, and Michael Jackson's sister LaToya."
But that sound.... I think it's time to whip out "River Deep, Mountain High."
