Phil Spector, who produced many of pop music’s biggest hits, has reportedly died from Covid-19 related complications at the age of 81.
Spector was diagnosed with the coronavirus disease four weeks ago and was transferred from prison to hospital.
TMZ is reporting that he recovered enough to return to jail but he relapsed and struggled with breathing and returned to a hospital where he died Saturday.
The 81-year-old was serving a 19 years-to-life sentence for the 2003 murder of actress Lana Clarkson. He was convicted in 2009, six years after Clarkson was shot to death at his home.
