    Unanimous guilty verdict after 30 hours deliberation.
    Hummm… but did he do it?

    I looks like he did it considering a jury of his peers found him guilty beyond all reasonable doubt.

    He might have been able to help himself a little had he not gone out of his way to look like a lunatic the whole time. :rolleyes:

    Agreed, it was a unanimous decision, so I'd say yeah he did it.

    Jury says....



    YES!
    Verdicts in criminal cases are always unanimous. That's why he had another trial.

    He was well known to be a gun toting weird person but man. The wall of sound.

    Such a waste.

    The problem is that even if he didn't do it his history with guns and his violent tempers did not help his case.

    II personally think he did it. I personally don't think it's much of a loss to the music industry. His wall of sound did more damage then good most of the time IMO. Go listen to Let It Be, and then listen to Let It Be... Naked. The latter will sound much better, because it's missing Spector's "Wall of Sound."

    The problem is not the "wall of sound" as it is over producing. You can add depth but don't throw so much waste that it detracts from everything. I hate backing tracks and voice layers, I think that is the biggest problem. If you don't have a voice one should not be provided.

    I disliked Spector's treatment of Let It Be a lot. There were heaps of other tracks he could have included (for example, their original version of Come and Get It before it was passed off to other artists, but then sat in the archive until the 90's), and he had to go and include those horrible Dig It/Maggie Mae pieces.
    Although the worst offendor for his Wall of Sound/over-production technique was easily Harrison's All Things Must Pass. The album is great for the most part, except for three tracks: Wah-Wah, What Is Life and Awaiting On You All. Wah-Wah was meant to be over-produced considering the subject (basically it's using guitar as a metaphor for John and Paul's bitching), What Is Life is actually somewhat bearable, but can still pass as being a bit too much. But Awaiting On You All could have easily been a good track, but it's just a mess of sound, at times it's hard to distinguish what instrument is which.

    And to think that one of Phil Spector's last pieces of work was Starsailor's crappy album from 6 years ago. :p

    I'd say the fact that there's more than one person discussing the matter means you're wrong :p ;)

    Spector did not even remember her name. The booze had him acting like an idiot and now he must pay for murdering Lana Clarkson.

    Well that's the first time I've seen someone look better with a Fright Wig than without one…

    *cripes* You think he'd at least have kept it cropped… yuck.

    He kept it long enough for a comb-over Bobby Charlton-style.
