Phil Spector Prison Photo — Legendary Music Producer Looks Unrecognizable
Wow! Phil looks like a totally different person! According to CBS, Terry Thornton who is the California Department of Corrections spokeswoman said on Sept. 22, that the October 2013 photo was taken when Phil was moved to the prison system’s huge California Heath Care Facility.
CBS claims, “The facility provides medical and mental health care to the state’s sickest inmates, including those with chronic conditions.”
In 2009 Phil was convicted of killing 40-year-old actress Lana by shooting her in the mouth at his mansion in California.
The Daily Mail reports, “Spector’s initial trial in 2007 for the murder of Lana Clarkson, who died from a gun shot wound to the head, ended in a deadlocked jury. But a second jury in 2009 found him guilty of second degree murder with a sentence of 19 years in prison.”
The site reports that Phil has a history with guns. He allegedly pulled a gun out on John Lennon while they were in a recording studio together.
During Phil’s trial, several women came forward with how he was known to use guns. Daily Mail reports, “One after another they told the court a variation on essentially the same story; how Spector, a normally charismatic if rather strange man, would fly into a rage after drinking too much and threaten them with guns when they tried to leave.”
During his highly publicized trial, Phil was known to sport several crazy wigs, a far cry from his now almost bald head.
