    GET OUTTA HERE! They found him guilty!? Now I'm going to have to come up with some new material. Back when we had OJ, him, and Baretta all in the news it seemed like you could kill someone in LA, videotape it, send the tape to the local news, and leave your driver's license on the body and the murder weapon in your car and you would be acquitted if you were remotely famous at some point.

    On the guilt-o-meter spectrum Spector was more guilty than Blake and far less than Simpson.

    Of course we're only talking about varying degrees of guilt within the category of "Hell yeah they fucking did it."

    Six years - that's an awful long time for something this apparently straight-forward.

    I saw a biography about Ronnie Spector that was produced before Lana Clarkson was murdered. Dude was fucking batshit and he put Ronnie through hell (along with their adopted kids).

    "I've been Phil Spector'd, ressurected..."



    Think Paul Simon was trying to tell us he'll be back?

    An album produced by the Beatles and overproduced by Phil Spector...

    I actually like Spector's version of the Let It Be album. Blasphemy! But with the exception of "The Long and Winding Road"(a bad song to begin with), every song on the album sounds pretty good. Well, not every song...I'd count "Dig It" and "Maggie Mae" as throwaway tracks, though.

    Radio stations will only play Paul's preferred version of the title track now, which is a shame...the album track has more of George's guitar on it. I like the album track version of "Get Back" more than the extended version, too; the extended version has more Paul wankery at the end while the album track ends perfectly. John saying "I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we've passed the audition” is a pretty good capstone to the Beatles' discography ("The End" / "Her Majesty" notwithstanding). And "I Me Mine" sounds a lot better with Spector's input.

    So YMMV. I think, though, that everyone kind of bought into McCartney's narrative on that album over the years...it makes me wonder if Lennon would have pushed back on that had he lived longer.
