Phil Spector

It difficult to pinpoint just exactly when flawed genius Phil Spector's wig wearing began. This photo of him aged 18 years shows no sign of balding.



A few years later in the mid 60s, and some signs of recession are appearing, or is this an early hairpiece?



Due to the wig like nature of many 1960s hairstyles it can be difficult at times to spot what is real and what is not. By the mid to late 60's however, it is highly likely he was a regular toupee wearer.



According to biographer Dave Thompson however, Spector started wearing hairpieces in the 70s after a serious car crash in which his head injuries needed 700 stitches.



His recent murder trial showcased some spectacular wigs. He was eventually found guilty of second degree murder and sentenced to at least 19 years in prison.



But due to California State prison policy he is forced to serve his sentence bare-headed.

  2. The end of the spring semester feels like perfect timing for coach factory store online a track that's both wistful and breezy. If you only look at the lyrics, the song could be read as a snide jab at outdated fashions; the melody diffuses any first impressions and paints an earnest profile of a glam music fan. At one point the song asks "So what's the problem if the form is outdated?" which made me wonder how coach factory website we'll be viewing Tinder a few years from now. Over the course of the Seattle band's EP, I find myself back at my college radio station. With "VHS Dating," I'm dropped off in the 80s; when it comes to summoning nostalgia, Coach Phillips really hits the nail on the (tape) head. Nick Brunner, Capital Public Radio

    Born A Shadow is the solo debut from Blaze McKenzie, following nearly a decade with Brooklyn indie rockers The Can't Tells. The Berklee College of Music alumnus says he's been criticized in the past for being too earnest, but that tendency came in handy when writing "Think a New Thing." Facing a creative block, McKenzie dipped into what he knows best his own life. The result has lyrics weaving through a dysfunctional relationship and bouts of drinking, sobriety and relapse. Amid pounding drums and a killer guitar riff, the Oklahoma City native sings about emerging from a period of numbness and official coach factory outlet online the confusion of those early days of sobriety ("But I'm alive now / Am I alive now? / I think that I'm alive now / Yeah, I'm alive now"). A chaotic swirl of sounds and screaming takes hold toward the end of the song, representing the helplessness felt when mistakes seem inevitable. You can call it dread, but it's also a level of self awareness that some never attain. Ryan LaCroix, KOSU.
