Phil Spector's Wall of Hair

A judge said Monday, he will allow four of 10 incidents of evidence in Spector's murder trial that prosecutors say illustrate the music producer's history of pulling guns on women.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors can introduce evidence in Phil Spector's murder trial to try to show the famed music producer had a history of threatening women before he was charged with killing a B-movie actress in his home two years ago.

...[Superior Court Judge Larry P.] Fidler allowed evidence of four incidents that allegedly occurred between 1988 and 1995 to be introduced during Spector's trial. He refused to allow six other alleged incidents to be introduced.

...Defense attorney Bruce Cutler argued that none of the allegations were true and dismissed the women as celebrity-chasing "acolytes and gold diggers" out for publicity.

He also warned that discussing the incidents during trial could prejudice the jury against Spector.

If you're worried about prejudicing a jury you might not want to come to court with a hairdo that would embarrass Don King...

"...charged with killing a B-movie actress in his home two years ago..."

Is it just me, or is that terribly sad? I can't think of many ways I'd less like to be referred to in a story referencing my death than as a "B-movie actress." Or actor.

Yeah. And technically, we haven't had any "B movies" since the end of the Hollywood studio system anyway.

Man, look at that hair! Him, Donald Trump, Don King, who else to add to the list?

Here's a "B" movie for ya:

Phil Specter plays "Dr. Who" in the next TV show shamelessly adapted to the big screen.

Why is the name of the victim not presented anywhere in the lede? Surely the name of the victim and her profession rates more than a passing B-movie actress.

Oh, and as for the hairdo. That's what you get when you wear tinfoil hats in the sun too long. Baked noodle.

Wow! That's some comb-over! Is this the alternative to the platform shoe to give the illusion of height?

It's a wig. Spector has been wearing a variety of wigs for many years.

Al Maviva:

Well, he may have killed a B-movie actress, but he still has some life left in him, as long as he doesn't murder Ted McGinley. If *that guy* shows up, it's all over, and you might as well stop the trial right now, before it gets cancelled due to low ratings.

Phil's wall of hair apparently draws all attention, effectively muffling away those personal details that could help you identify with the other persons involved in the drama - much like his wall of sound did.

He is OBVIOUSLY going for an insanity defense. One look at him and I think the jury will agree he is mentally unstable. LOL

Whether you are looking for swinging couples or sexy singles as new swing partners, or just seeking someone to hang out with, you'll be able to find exactly who you are looking for, locally or around the world. Our users are looking for lasting friendships with those they can share their most "intimate secrets and fantasies".

He does have a gun in that hairdo! Here's the video that proves it http://www.nationalwatercooler.com

Sure I think that he did it. Certainly he should claim insanity - everyone would agree to that. But his wigs? Man they are great!! Does the man want attention? Those wigs are perfect - who can ignore him with those great wigs? I want more wigs - wilder, madder, more insane wigs to pump up the media frenzy.
Phil Spector has given more talent to our mundane lives than P. Hilton ever has and ever will. He was a "has been" at age 30 then brought himself back - kindof - after treating his wife and kids badly! But that just proves that he has been off and on that ol' rocker of his for years and years.
More wigs Phil, more wigs!!! We love the Wall of Hair to go with your Wall of Sound! but you really should not have ever owned a gun and really.....shame on you - you need to do time for the crime.
will he get time off like ph?
