Mug Shots

Phil Spector's Bald Truth

During his trials for the murder of B-movie actress Lana Clarkson, we thought we'd seen famed "Wall of Sound" music producer Phil Spector in everything—a greying afro, a blond bowl cut, and a brown layered mullet—but recent prison mugshots of the convicted murderer show him au naturale, his bald pate shining, surrounded by long straggly hair. The Times of London reports that the mugshots of Spector have been distributed to the media and social networking sites including Twitter as part of a Department of Corrections policy of transparency of public information. The released photographs angered Spector's wife Rachelle. "They took my husband's freedom and dignity. So why not his hair?" she said. "This is a personal matter. But in case you don't know, they don't allow for much accessorizing while in prison."
