Phil Spector is reported to be “very alarmed” at an offer to collaborate, musically, with cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson.

Spector is serving a sentence for murdering actress Lana Clarkson at Corcoran State Prison in California, the same place Manson has been held since 1971.

Spectors publicist Hal Lifson has told the BBC that Charles Manson sent a note to Spector calling him the “greatest producer who ever lived” and suggested they make a record together.

Manson has been writing and recording spoken word and music albums for several years while in prison.

Lifson said that: “Phil Spector has been very, very alarmed and scared at the notion of Charles Manson contacting him for any reason, also adding: “He is very worried that any association be made between himself and Charles Manson. He mentioned that he used to get phone calls from John Lennon and Tina Turner, and now it’s Charles Manson. He said, ‘Go figure’. It was kind of a dark humour comment.”
