He’s a Rebel. The Truth About Phil Spector – Rock and Roll’s Legendary Madman

Ribowsky, Mark


1st Edition

Red half cloth boards with silver and gilt lettering to black spine. Some foxing to edges and a black remainder mark to tail-edge. Interior clean and unmarked. Dust jacket has a closed tear to tail-corner of front panel and is slightly rubbed to spine ends. Includes 16 pages of b/w photographs. *** Dubbed the ‘first tycoon of teen’ by Tom Wolfe in 1965, Phil Spector is the ultimate genius/madman. He dominated the first half of the 1960s, the period between Elvis and The Beatles, with some of the best pop music ever recorded. After this short reign and a brief resurgence with The Beatles he became better known as the the eccentric, wig wearing recluse who in 2008 was jailed for murder. Ribowsky’s largely sympathetic biography only goes up to 1989. He doesn’t shy away from showing Spector’s nasty side, but his focus is on the music and he is clearly a fan.
