***In case anyone didn't already know.
***Spector was as demented as they get.
***In 1973, Lennon hired Spector to helm a record of rock ‘n’ roll cover songs. Spector routinely arrived late to the studio, high on amyl nitrate, wearing elaborate costumes (one night a surgeon, the next a karate expert) with an ever-present pistol tucked in a hip holster. One night, for a prank, Spector fired the gun in the control room, inches from the former Beatle’s ear. An enraged Lennon yelled, “Phil, if you’re going to kill me, kill me. But don’t f**k with my ears. I need ‘em.” Another time, Spector pulled his gun and chased Lennon through the hallways of the studio, screaming threats."
***Spector and John
** John's comment to Phil is priceless although a little eerie considering what would happen to John as well as Phil finally killing a woman many years later.
*About as creepy as John's refrain of 'Shoot Me' on Come Together.
I agree. John's refrain of "Shoot Me" is eerie too.
