The name of Phil Spector is legendary in the music world. Writer and producer of countless chart-topping standards and shadowy svengali of acts that have now become household names, his innovative genius in the studio revitalised music production in the 1960s and changed the way we listen to music forever.
But his successes soon became overshadowed by his reputation for eccentricity and excess, his fractious personality and fascination with handguns eventually proving a lethal combination. Arrested in 2003 for the murder of B-movie star Lana Clarkson, his star-studded career nosedived into scandal and rumour.
Featuring interviews from those closest to him, including second wife Ronnie Spector, Wall Of Pain concludes the painful tale of pop's tortured genius.
