But [[NeverLiveItDown you mostly know him for being totally, 100% batshit insane]]. There's a reason he's at the top of our "[[RecordProducer Producer From Hell]]" list after all. Aside from threatening Music/LeonardCohen and Music/TheRamones with guns (in the case of the former it was even a ''crossbow'') 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 [[BarbarianQueen Lana Clarkson]].

* GunNut: Stories have been told about him ready to shoot Music/LeonardCohen point-blank in the face and holding Music/TheRamones hostage and making them listen to him play "Baby, I Love You" until four in the morning.

* CreatorCouple: With Ronnie Spector of The Ronettes. At least until they divorced.



* TroubledProduction: ''Music/LetItBe'', ''[[Music/JohnLennon Rock 'N' Roll]]'', ''[[Music/LeonardCohen Death Of A Ladies' Man]]'' and ''[[Music/TheRamones End Of The Century]]'' spring to mind.

Added DiffLines:

* AxeCrazy: Judging by the fact that he issued death threats to his wife and his clients, as well as his murder of Lana Clarkson, it's fair to say that he was.....off.
