Phil spector: Convicted Murderer

LIFE IN PRISON with chance of parole after 18 years.

For music fans, there is no silver lining to this tragic episode in Spector's life

He produced records for some of the biggest names in popular music since the early 1960s.

His hits include the Ronettes' Be My Baby, You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' by the Righteous Brothers' and Ike and Tina Turner's River Deep - Mountain High. He produced The Beatles' Let It Be album and John Lennon's classic single, Imagine.

Spector pioneered the art of multiple track recordings using small armies of musicians - pianists, guitarists and drummers - to produce the "Wall of Sound".
