Harrison didn't like the experience and never worked with Spector again.

John Lennon worked with Spector until they had a falling out. Spector absconded with the tapes of several songs he recorded with Lennon, and they weren't released until after Lennon's death, as Side 1 of the Menlove Avenue album.

^That sounds familiar. Was Lennon the first one to suggest Specter for Let It Be? I know he was already a famous producer.

Spector produced Lennon's single Instant Karma. Lennon and Harrison then asked Spector to produce the Let It Be album. McCartney was angry with his bandmates by then and refused to have anything more to do with them. Lennnon praised Spector highly for the work he did on Let It Be.

Spector had his first big hit, He's a Rebel by the Crystals, in 1962. Be My Baby by the Ronettes was released in 1963 and You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling by the Righteous Brothers in 1965.

Spector routinely carried a gun around and threatened people with it, but apparently Lana Clarkson was the only person he ever shot.

Jean-Pierre Bacri, the French actor and screenwriter known for his collaborations with Agnès Jaoui, has died at the age of 69. He died after a battle with cancer according to multiple French reports which cited his agent Anne Alvares-Correa.

Bacri broke out on the stage and screen in the 1980s, including appearing in Luc Besson’s 1985 thriller Subway alongside Isabelle Adjani and Christopher Lambert. It was in that decade that he also first met Jaoui, and the pair would go on to have a vibrant creative partnership that spanned films including the multi-Cesar Award-winning Smoking / No Smoking, Family Resemblances and The Taste Of Others, with the latter also nominated for the foreign language film Oscar in 2001.

Ron Dominguez, a Disney Legend and former Executive Vice President of Attractions, died January 1, 2021 at 85. No cause of death was revealed in a Facebook post by the Disneyland Alumni.

Known as “Mr. Disneyland,” Dominguez was a prime mover in creating the Disney California Adventure theme park. He retired from The Walt Disney Company in 1994 after 39 years.

Born August 10, 1935, Dominguez grew up on the property that would become Disneyland, and his family home was moved to the park to serve as administrative offices. He became a ticket taker in the initial hires for the theme park.
