He's Sure the Ghoul I Love (1974)

Phil has a serious auto accident in 1974. Upon his release from the hospital, he spray-paints his hair silver and gold and hangs an oversize cross around his neck to distract people's attention from his unsightly facial scars. However, his efforts don't divert the LAPD's attention away from Spector's entourage's collective gun arsenal. Although they were all fully licensed, the group spends the night in jail, mainly because Spector looks like an extra from The Devil's Rain. C

Suspicious Minds? (1975)

Who be at my door? Phil Spector mans the Billy Goat Gruff circa the late '70s.

While trying to convince LaToya Jackson to let him produce her next record, he imprisons her in his house for four hours and freaks her out by giving her a key that said "Bates Motel" and asking her if she'd like to go there with him. Cue screeching orchestral stabs! D
