Jailhouse Rock

Most bizarre musical collab of all time? Apparently Charles Manson has contacted prisonmate Phil 'Wall of Sound' Spector in the hope of working together. According to the 'New York Post', Manson dispatched a guard with a note to Spector's cell in the hope that the two might be able to lay down some material. With Spector serving 15 to life, and Manson not expected out any time this millenium, lack of time will presumably not suffice as an excuse. Nonetheless, it sounds like there's nothing going from Spector's end, even after being on the receiving end of a host of platitudes from Manson. Spector's wife (now that's what I call loyalty) said: "[Manson] said he wanted him to come over to his [cell]. He said he considers Philip the greatest producer who ever lived. I think Manson wants to glean some musical advice from Phil, who was a 60s music god with his 'Wall of Sound'". Whatever's next? Huntley and Fritzl swapping beats in an incarcerated homage to Postal Service? Bernard Madoff penning lyrics to Timothy McVeigh melodies? This could be the beginning of a whole new musical genre...
