    Chapter Eight: Phil Spector and Darlene Love

    Darlene Love was the anonymous voice behind many of Phil Spector’s earliest chart-topping teenage pop symphonies; songs like “He’s a Rebel” and “He’s the Boy I Love” bear Darlene’s uncredited but unmistakable vocal. Darlene talks about how she struggled to pull herself out of anonymity and into the spotlight, but how every attempt was thwarted by the same person behind the recording console: Phil Spector.

    Chapter Six: Phil Spector and Debbie Harry

    Chapter Five: Phil Spector and Leonard Cohen

Despite cameos by Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg, and trips to islands off the coast of Greece and Zen retreats in California, Leonard’s memories keep coming back to one word: guns.
