The producer, convicted murdered has died...

Ronnie Spector has shared a statement on the death of lauded producer and convicted murderer Phil Spector.

News of the producer's passing was confirmed yesterday (January 17th) - he was 81 years old, and was serving time in the prison for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

The question of how to assess Spector's imperial run in the 60s was raised online, with numerous discussions about how best to view those recordings.

Phil Spector's work was touched by genius, but he was also guilty of deeply abusive behaviour towards his wife Ronnie Spector, of The Ronettes.

Ronnie has frequently spoken about her time with the producer, and offered a short statement on his death.

"Working with Phil Spector was working with the best. So much to love about those days," she said. "Falling in love was like a fairytale."

She added: "He was a brilliant producer, but a lousy husband."
