Music producer made most famous for creating the “Wall Of Sound,” Phil Spector was a huge part of the 1960s girl group sound and movement, working with artists like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tina Turner[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Ronnetes[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]John Lennon[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]George Harrison[/lastfm].

In 2003, actress Lana Clarkson was found dead by firearm in Spector’s Alhambra, California mansion. Although Spector said Clarkson’s death was an “accidental suicide,” other women came forward and said Spector would allegedly hold them at gunpoint if they tried to leave his house.

After a mistrial, in 2008, Spector was convicted of murder in the second degree at his second trial. He was given a nineteen year prison sentence.
