Description

Phil Spector: Murderer. Musical genius. His story is told from the perspective of those who knew him best, his famous so-called friends. Blood On The Tracks is part true crime, part historical fiction, part spoken word lo-fi beat noir brought to you by Jake Brennan, the host of the award winning music and true crime podcast, DISGRACELAND, featuring the fictionalized voices of Lenny Bruce, Ronnie Spector, Ike Turner, Debbie Harry and more. Just like Phil Spector, this podcast sounds like nothing you’ve heard before. Because you can’t push the needle into the red, without leaving a little blood on the tracks.

Chapter Seven: Phil Spector and John Lennon
1908
From Let It Be to Imagine to an infamous “lost weekend” in Los Angeles, no Beatle had more face time with Phil Spector than John Lennon. John reminisces on being drunkenly tied to a bed, having a gun fired at him in the studio, and lawyering up simply to get his own session tapes back. Every crazy story has the same crazy common denominator: Phil Spector.  Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
