Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Phil Spector is a Record Producer, songwriter, and convicted murderer. He became famous in The Sixties for pioneering the "Wall of Sound", a production technique that relied on large groups of musicians playing heavily orchestrated parts to yield a dense, full sound. His credits include numerous Girl Groups (The Ronettes, The Crystals), Ike & Tina Turner, The Righteous Brothers, The Beatles, John Lennon's first three solo albums, George Harrison's first solo album, The Ramones' End of the Century and Leonard Cohen's Death of a Ladies Man. His production style has served as an important influences on several subgenres of Alternative Rock, such as Baroque Pop and Shoegazing.

But you mostly know him for being totally, 100% batshit insane. There's a reason he's at the top of our "Producer From Hell" list after all. Aside from threatening Leonard Cohen and The Ramones with guns and stealing the tapes of Lennon's Rock 'n Roll album at gunpoint, there's also the part where he showed his wife a coffin and threatened to kill her if she left and also the part where he got convicted for murdering actress Lana Clarkson.
