Today I got linked an article about Phil Spector’s arrival at Corcoran prison in CA. It’s mostly about him and playing music, blah, blah, blah. The interesting bit is at the end of the article.
Spector was previously held in the Los Angeles County jail and then an intake center in Kern County, where corrections officials evaluated him and assigned him to the Corcoran facility.
Spector’s wife, Rachelle, welcomed the transfer and said it would be an improvement from the Kern County prison where, she said, she was unable to visit her husband or speak to him by phone. “Anywhere is better than that place,” she said.
I was born and grew up in Bakersfield which is the seat of Kern County. Damn I’m still glad to be out of that place, even after all these years.
