Phil Spector Murder Trial Coming To Your Plasma TV ?

Phil Spector Tried For Murder LIVE On Your TV

Call us old-fashioned but there's certainly nothing we find more entertaining than the idea of watching a disturbed bipolar old man with giant hair get tried for the murder of a B-movie actress - so thank goodness the Phil Spector murder trial will be on TV.

Phil Spector trial might be televised, judge says

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- The judge in the murder trial of music impresario Phil Spector said Wednesday he's leaning toward allowing the trial to be televised and will make a decision after hearing from lawyers later this month.

The 67-year-old music producer -- famed for creating the "wall of sound" recording technique that revolutionized rock music -- is charged with killing actress Lana Clarkson in his suburban mansion on February 3, 2003.
"This is a trial of public interest," said Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler. "I always have a problem with commentators telling people what is going on rather than letting the public see the trial for themselves. I'm a firm believer in having the public see it."

Attorneys on both sides said they wanted time to consider the proposal. The next pretrial hearing is set for February 16.
Spector, who did not attend the hearing, has pleaded innocent and is free on $1 million bail.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Phil Spector

Phil Spector is among the greatest producers of rock and roll, and some would passionately argue that he is the greatest ever. His ambitious approach to the art of record production helped redefine and revitalize rock and roll during its early-Sixties slump. On a string of classic records released between 1961 and 1966 on his Philles label, he elevated the monaural 45 rpm single to an art form. "Little symphonies for the kiddies," he called them, and they were indeed dramatic pop records possessed of a grandeur and intimacy theretofore uncommon in rock and roll.

Wall of Sound

Spector usually worked at the Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles because of its exceptional echo chambers, essential to the Wall of Sound technique. To create the effect, Spector arranged the songs for large orchestras of musicians playing instruments traditionally associated with orchestras (such as strings and horns), as well as instruments not generally used for ensemble playing (such as the electric guitar). Microphones in the recording studio captured the sound, which was then transmitted to an echo chamber -- a basement room outfitted with speakers and microphones. The signal from the studio would be played through the speakers and would reverberate around the room, being picked up by the microphones. The echo-laden sound was then channeled back to the control room, where it was transferred to tape.
