Not just a wall…a wall of sound!

Spector Case Hitting a Wall?
Nearly six months after being implicated in the death of a B-movie actress, record producer Phil Spector remains as unchained as one of his famous melodies.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide investigators have yet to conclude their probe into the alleged slaying of Lana Clarkson, found shot in the head February 3 at Spector’s castle-style retreat in a Los Angeles suburb.
As a result, Spector next week likely will receive a one- to two-month extension on his stay-out-of-jail pass. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Tuesday.
Spector, arrested in connection with the Clarkson case, has been free on $1 million bail since shortly after the killing. No charges have been filed.
Sheriff spokesman Lt. Dan Rosenberg tells the Associated Press his department is waiting on crime-lab reports.
Without those reports, sheriff’s investigators can’t pass along their case to prosecutors, and without the case, prosecutors can’t decide whether to file charges, or not.
A call seeking comment Spector’s attorney, O.J. Simpson defender Robert Shapiro, was not returned Wednesday morning. The lawyer for Clarkson’s family declined comment.
Spector, for one, is on the record as saying he did nothing wrong.
In an interview in the July issue of Esquire, the 62-year-old music mogul who constructed the “Wall of Sound” around a box-set’s worth of 1960s hits, including “Unchained Melody,” “Be My Baby,” and “He’s a Rebel,” said Clarkson shot herself.
Spector described the 40-year-old star of Barbarian Queen as being “loud” and “drunk” the night of her death. In the end, he said, “she kissed [a] gun.”
In the magazine, Spector, a renowned gun collector who once reputedly pulled a firearm on the Ramones, said he didn’t know where Clarkson got the weapon, or why she pulled the trigger. Reports say the two met the night of February 2 at the House of Blues on L.A.’s Sunset Strip, where Clarkson worked.
Homicide detectives seemingly have ruled out the suicide theory, saying they believe a crime was committed.
