Jailed killer shows new face

Central Station | 10 Aug 2017

A new mugshot of Phil Spector in prison shows the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer free of the huge hair that was so striking during his murder trials.

In the photo taken in June and provided by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation this week, the music producer, 76, is smiling broadly and wearing hearing aids.

Previous mugshots of Spector have shown him bald on top but with long, stringy hair in the back. He is now completely bald, a far cry from the bizarre wigs he wore at his two trials.He was convicted in 2009 of killing actress Lana Clarkson, and is serving a sentence of 19 years to life.

The conviction came after a storied career as a pop innovator known for hits like Da Doo Ron Ron and Youve Lost That Loving Feeling.
