Phil Spector's Prison Barber Is Extremely Relieved Right Now
Right. So that haggard, emaciated, disintegrating man in the photo above is Phil Spector, pictured sometime around day one of the 19 years to life he's serving in a California state prison for murdering the actress Lana Clarkson in the foyer of his gun-riddled mansion.

And in North Kern State Prison, no fright wigs are allowed. In other news, Phil Spector is not quite five feet tall.
