RIP Ellie Greenwich

Pop genius Ellie Greenwich is no more. She's probably the reason why, despite his crimes, I'll never stop listening to Phil Spector music. Off to the Brill Building in the sky.

Even The Ramones treated her compositions with respect. Though in that case they were encouraged to behave by the presence of one Phil Spector sat behind the control desk and presumably waving a BIG BLUDDY GUN around. Here they are being all respectful on Top of the Pops. If you look closely, you can see Spector on the sidelines pointing a bazooka at them.RIP Ellie Greenwich
