Notorious killer wants producer to help him launch music career

Notorious killer Charles Manson has reportedly asked legendary producer Phil Spector to make him a star and help him launch a music career.

Spector was recently moved to Corcoran State Prison in California to begin a 19 year jail sentence for the murder of actress Linda Clarkson - the same prison which Manson is currently being held in.

And according to Spector's wife Rochelle, Manson has tried to get in contact with the producer.

“A guard brought Philip a note from Manson... He said he considers Philip the greatest producer who ever lived”, she said.

Manson has a history of committing horrific crimes, including murder; he is also partly responsible for the unfortunate rise of Kasabian, after the Leicester band took their name from his getaway driver Linda Kasabian.
