Phil Spector continues work in studio

He works after murder trial court sessions

Phil Spector continues work in studio
Phil Spector is continuing his producing work after court sessions during which is on trial for murder.

The legendary music producer is working with new solo artist Hargo, whom he met at his Alhambra mansion where actress Lana Clarkson was shot dead in February 2003.

Spector told Hargo “You remind me of a young John Lennon” and ditched scheduled production work with The Vines in order to work with the solo newbie.

Spector has been working with Hargo in the studio and evenings after his sessions in court, and a track entitled ‘Crying for John Lennon’ will feature in the upcoming Lennon documentary ‘Strawberry Fields’ Keeping the Spirit of John Lennon Alive’, which features an interview with Spector recorded in February of this year.

According to Spector, "It's a wonderful song. Actually it sounds like something John would have given me produce back in the day.”

Meanwhile, Spector’s trial continues today. Stay tuned to NME.COM for daily updates from the courtroom.
