Holy shit.

The legendary US record producer Phil Spector has been charged with murder after a woman was found shot dead at his house in Los Angeles.
"He has been charged with first-degree murder. Bail has been set at $1m," an officer at the Los Angeles Inmate Information service told BBC News Online. The 62-year-old producer was arrested at about 0500 local time (1300 GMT) on Monday at a house in the suburb of Alhambra. The body of a white woman was found at the scene.

For some reason I'm not entirely surprised that he takes antipsychotic medication as stories about him being a headcase are rife. I knew about him pulling a gun on the Ramones during the End of the Century sessions, but didn't know until I read this that he'd done the same to Leonard Cohen too. Needless to say my jaw dropped when I heard about this murder story on the TV news this morning.
