In 2002, the reclusive and legendary record producer Phil Spector gave his first interview in twenty-five years to Mick Brown. The day after it was published an actress named Lana Clarkson was shot dead in Spector's LA castle. This is Brown's odyssey into the strange life and times of Phil Spector. Beginning with that fateful meeting in Spector's home and going on to explore his colourful and extraordinary life and career, including the unfolding of the Clarkson case, this is one of the most bizarre and compelling stories in pop history.

Review:

`Mich Brown's biography manages to be both creepy and compelling.'
-- Observer, April 6th 2008

`Spector, his associates insist, has two distinct personalities. This exemplary biography, updated to cover the murder trial, gives both a careful hearing.' -- Telegraph, April 5th 2008

`Tearing Down the Wall of Sound, which ends with Spector's infamous 2007 murder trial, is a painstaking, highly readable attempt to understand a flawed genius' -- Sunday Telegraph, April 6th 2008

`This terrific biography...feels up to the moment as well as comprehensive and judicious. Its tone is perfectly judged' -- Guardian, April 5th 2008
