Phil Spector: Obsessed With Guns For 30 Years

Legendary music producer PHIL SPECTOR has been "obsessed" with guns for more than 30 years, claims the star's former roadie.

In his new book MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR, former BEATLES roadie TONY BRAMWELL claims the music guru - who produced the Beatles' LET IT BE album - was "paranoid" and always carried the biggest gun he could find.

Bramwell writes, "Phil didn't have a gun licence in the UK but he always told me that he was never without his big US police .38s, which he kept stuffed into his belt and in a shoulder holster beneath his capes."

The 64-year-old producer is currently free on $1 million (GBP525,000) bail after being charged with the murder of actress LANA CLARKSON, who was shot dead at his Los Angeles home in February 2003.

Spector is currently awaiting trial.
