UK author Mick Brown talks with Authorlink at Random House Headquarters in New York as he begins his U.S. book tour

London journalist and broadcaster Mick Brown has been haunted by his 2002 interview with Phil Spector. Just weeks after Brown talked with the world’s most successful pop-record producer, minor actress Lana Clarkson was found shot dead in Spector’s vast Los Angeles retreat.

Spector is now on trial for her murder. And Mick Brown’s book, TEARING DOWN THE WALL OF SOUND, provides a rare look into the fame, obsession, genius, and madness of the pop celebrity who created some of the greatest pop music of all time.

Mick Brown, a London native, is the author of four previous books. His article on Phil Spector was published in The Telegraph just two days before Lana Clarkson was found dead in the “castle” where he’d interviewed him only two months earlier.
