Before he was an alleged murderer, Phil Spector was a mad genius of pop music. His productions, marked by a style known as "the wall of sound," bridged the gap between Elvis and The Beatles. His first hit song, "To Know Him is to Love Him" was as a performer, but he quickly transitioned into production, producing hit records for artists like Darlene Love and the Ronnettes. Even after his career crested in the early 60s, he produced seminal records for John Lennon and The Ramones. Mick Brown was the last journalist to interview the reclusive super-producer before the night in 2003 when he allegedly killed a young actress. His new book, "Tearing Down the Wall of Sound: The Rise and Fall of Phil Spector," documents Spector's life. Please share your thoughts on this program on our forum!
