However, chances are you mostly know him for being totally, 100% batshit insane. There's a reason he's at the top of our "Producer from Hell" list after all. Aside from threatening Music/LeonardCohen and Music/TheRamones with loaded guns and stealing the tapes of Lennon's ''Rock 'n' Roll'' album at gunpoint, there's also the part where he showed his wife a coffin and threatened to kill her if she left, and also the part where he got convicted for murdering actress Lana Clarkson. The last album he was credited on was ''Silence is Easy'' by post-{{Britpop}} band Starsailor, and even then, they almost immediately booted him off after he produced two tracks.
