YMMV / Phil Spector

Go To

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Goes for both individuals in this case: when Phil started firing a gun over John Lennon in the studio during the making of Rock 'N' Roll (see Gun Nut), John told him, "Phil, if you’re going to kill me, kill me. But don’t fuck with my ears. I need ‘em.”
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: It's pretty much impossible to discuss Spector's invaluable contributions to music history without also mentioning his long history of violent behavior, his poor treatment of musicians, and his murder conviction.

  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: With entire genres like Shoegazing and Baroque Pop influenced by his production style, it can be hard to understand just how innovative Spector was. His material seems to blend in perfectly with the 2000s chamber pop landscape. Somewhat fittingly, his final production work was in 2003, during the middle of said landscape's mainstream lifetime.

How well does it match the trope?
