Music Legend Arrested In Connection With Homicide

LOS ANGELES -- Music industry veteran Phil Spector was reportedly arrested Monday morning in connection with a local shooting, according to authorities.

Shortly after 5 a.m. Monday morning, Alhambra police officers responded to a call from the 1700 block of S. Grandview Drive (pictured, below) regarding a shooting, according to the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau.



When the officers arrived they discovered that a female had been shot inside the location, according to authorities. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspect, identified by authorities as Phillip Spector, 62, was taken into custody and is currently being detained at the Alhambra police station.

Spector created the "Wall of Sound" effect that involved overdubbing scores of musicians to create a massive roar, which changed the way pop records were produced.

Among his session players, known as the "Wrecking Crew," were guitarist Glen Campbell, pianist Leon Russell, drummer Hal Blaine and the late Sonny Bono, who learned the producer's trade under Spector.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, Spector produced records for the Beatles, the Righteous Brothers, the Crystals and Darlene Love.

Spector produced a string of '60s hits, including the Crystals' "Da Doo Run Run" and "Then He Kissed Me," the Ronettes' "Be My Baby" and "Walking in the Rain," and Love's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" and "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry."

Spector married Ronnie Bennett, a member of the girl group the Ronettes. They divorced in 1974. He has five children.

Spector's father, Benjamin, committed suicide in 1949. Spector later visited the grave and used the inscription "To Know Him Was to Love Him" as the basis for a hit song.

Spector's last major album was "End of the Century," a 1980 collaboration with the Ramones. During the session, the late bassist Dee Dee Ramone said Spector pulled a gun on the band.

Fonda Withdraws Harvard Grant


Movie star Jane Fonda has taken back a $12.5 million grant she gave to top American university Harvard after learning the Ivy League school is struggling to appoint staff for vacant head teacher positions. Fonda will withhold the balance of her donation, roughly half of that needed for a new research center. The unused portion of her initial contribution will also be returned to her. The Boston Globe claims the actress was frustrated with the university's handling of her 2001 bequest - the largest single gift in the graduate school's 83- year history. Fonda is reportedly angry after hearing Harvard authorities have failed to appoint a head to the new research center.
