Unplugged: Bald music mogul Phil Spector ditches wig in prison mugshot after murder conviction [Pic in URL]
By PAUL THOMPSON 10th June 2009
Former music producer Phil Spector has been forced to pose for a prison photo - without his wig.
The 69-year-old, who was jailed for 19 years for the murder of Lana Clarkson, had to leave off his famous bouffant-style wig for the prison mugshot photo.
He was photographed after arriving at the North Kern State prison in Delano, California, where he is being processed before being sent to jail.
Bald: Phil Spector looks gaunt as he poses without a wig for a prison mugshot
Spector became famous at his murder trials in Los Angeles for a series of increasingly outrageous wigs.
His hair always seemed carefully coiffed which added to his bizarre, gaunt look as he stood trial.
The latest prison photo reveals the few last wisps of natural dark hair on the legendary producer's head.
He also looks haggard in the photo which will remain on his file until his release.

Yes he does.
You know, I actually thought that was a picture of Alan Combs........
They're going to take his precious...
Hmmm separated at birth?- Riff Raff and Spector???
What a shame.He is perhaps the greatest music producer of all time
Feed your brain with drugs for 40 years have lots of money.
This is what happens.
I tried to watch the movie,could not..
Am i missing anything?
A multi-bazillionaire and that is the best he can come up with for a wig???
Lucky guy. Free medical care in prison includes hair plug transplants!
Wall of Forehead!
Yikes...Seriously he looks like every sterotypical serial /killer paedo.....
Philip is mah main man! There hasn’t been a producer of silly pop records like him since, well, Phil Spector!
Yeah i watched it on DVD and could not get into it.
I know what you are talking about,i had older friends who would bring toast and water pistols to see the movie,but alas i was to young.
C’est la vie...
<That was a wig????

My thoughts as well, my FRiend, my thoughts as well.
Reminds me of the character played by Dwight Yokum in Sling Blade.
Wall of Forehead?? OK, I lol’d at that one ):)
I worked with Spector in the early 60's in New York City when he was a talented tyrant in the studio. At that time his assistant was a nobody named Sonny Bono who he treated worse than crap. Even in those days he had a habit of waving a pistol around and scaring the snot out of everybody who were afraid he would kill someone. Little known fact: I actually went out with his first wife Ronnie (Veronica) before he met her, when she was an unknown Go-Go dancer at a NYC nightclub.
Burned out drug addict.
Made some great music back in the day (so what?), but he became a total waste of skin.
Thats a cool story,
I saw her perform a while ago with Eddie Money.
Eddie was washed up, to be polite about it.
Ronnie looked a bit heavy for her dress, but she was still ronnie. :)
They were the bad girls of the scene back then weren't they?
