On this episode of Creatives Are The Worst, we’re looking at the musical triumph and tumultuous personal life of famed record producer Harvey Spector.
Harvey Phillip Spector was widely considered to be the first true auteur among record producers.
His trademark “Wall of Sound” can be heard on albums by The Beatles, the Ramones, The Righteous Brothers, The Ronettes, and so many more.
Artists like Brian Wilson and John Lennon have called him “the greatest record producer of all time,” but a tumultuous personal life and a penchant for violence were simmering beneath Spector’s surface.
It would all culminate in 2003 when actress Lana Clarkson was found dead from a single gunshot wound in Spector’s home.
Understandably, we’re not even asking if Phil Spector is the worst — we’re declaring it.
