phil spector has been convicted of 2nd degree murder

but he will always be the inventor of the wall of sound to me

and better than that, the producer of one of my favorite Ramones albums “End of the Century” which included such classics as

1. “Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio?” (Ramones) – 3:50
4. “Chinese Rock” (Dee Dee Ramone, Richard Hell) – 2:28
5. “The Return of Jackie and Judy” (Ramones) – 3:12
7. “Baby, I Love You” (Phil Spector, Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich) – 3:47
8. “I Can’t Make It on Time” (Ramones) – 2:32
10. “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School” (Ramones) – 2:38

but yeah, a jury said he’s a killer, which just adds another page to rock’s rich tapestry of tragedy
