Phil Spector (born Harvey Phillip Spector, later Phillip Harvey Spector, December 26, 1939) is an American record producer, songwriter, and the originator of the Wall of Sound production method. At the height of his career, Spector was a pioneer of the 1960s girl-group sound, and produced more than twenty-five Top 40 hits from 1960 to 1965, writing or co-writing many of them for artists such as the Ronettes and the Crystals. Following collaborations with John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, Dion DiMucci, and the Ramones in the 1970s, Spector remained largely inactive. In later years, he became infamous as the subject of two trials for murder and a second-degree conviction.
