    I saw something that said Covid was a partial cause.

    Spector’s ending is tragic all the way around.

    i loved his work. so talented! so tortured/pathological. R.I.P.
  5. Not my favorite human. He did influence popular music in a profound way, but unfortunately that's about the only good thing I can say.

    The Ramones fans are torn today, many are trashing the man.
    I can't even comment what I would like to, because of the subject-matter that is forbidden here.

    Sad day. Another of many sad days recently. Legend is an understatement. All I can say is thank you.

    I never actually learned to play very well
    I'm a little conflicted about his "wall of sound" approach, but at the same time I can't deny it was genius. RIP Phil Spector.

    Even though he was found guilty, I am pretty sure that Phil Spector had profound mental health issues. The fact is he died a criminal, but nothing changes his great vision as a producer. All around are art and inventions created by people with horrible flaws and shortcomings.
