Phil Spector's Collaborator Breaks Silence with Tell-All Memoir: I Was the First Woman Phil Spector Killed
Legendary songwriter, Beverly Ross-one of the architects of rock & roll and composer of "Lollipop" (The Chordettes) and "The Girl of My Best Friend" (ELVIS), emerges with her salacious tell-all memoir: I Was the First Woman Phil Spector Killed.
After opening her home to a ruthless young Phil Spector and introducing Phil to all her business contacts, Beverly Ross was stabbed in the back as Phil exploited her industry relationships and absconded with her burgeoning momentum. The autobiography details her turbulent early years in the NYC music machine-especially her dealings with the now infamous "Wall of Sound" producer.

I Was the First Woman Phil Spector Killed releases on the same day as HBO's made-for-TV movie "Phil Spector" March 24, 2013.
"HBO got it wrong. Phil wasn't some kind of megalomaniac," says Ross. "He'd charm the hell out of anybody before throwing them under the bus. The man had no conscience whatsoever."
A cautionary tale of egomania gone awry, a behind the scenes glimpse of the real Tin Pan Alley and its host of characters, and a hilariously irreverent first person account of what it was like to be a young woman in the early days of Rock 'N' Roll-and being betrayed by the man she once shared her home.
