    Who is this? (hey, just for fun, act fast!)

    "He practically invented his own job and the jobs of everyone that followed after him.

    However, he is definitely not the best XXXXXXX  because many of the approaches he pioneered are also some of the most hated qualities that XXXXXXXXs can have.  XXXXXXX would leach onto a promising band when he thought he could use them and then throw them away like yesterday's garbage when something better came along, destroying their careers and relegating them to the dust bin of rock history. He often had little regard for singers and musicians as artists or even as human beings. (For examples, see his entire marriage to XXXXXX XXXXXXX.  The time when he showed her the glass coffin he intended to put her in if he ever had to kill her comes to mind.) He is the archetypal cigar chomping (in the figurative sense) music XXXXXXXX big shot who looks at a band and sees dollar signs over their heads. Moreover, he was an enemy of the LP as a means of artistic expression and only believed in one-off, money-making singles. Although a sonic innovator, he was also a sonic Luddite as he opposed the use of stereo channels because he thought it took power away from him and gave it to the listener. I'm not kidding, he's that much of a megalomaniac. He would also sometimes ignore a band's artistic intent and decide to create the songs he wanted to make, famously in his contributions to the Beatles' XXX XX XX. It's because of the increased power he brought to the role of XXXXXXXX, as well as his abuse of that power that some bands handle XXXXXXXXXX by themselves. They don't want some money hungry big wig watering down their music and turning them into corporate wh0res, all the while glorifying himself and lining the pockets of the record company. Entire careers in XXXXXX XXXXXXXXX have been forged by people not doing what XXXXXXXXXXX  did.

    However, he changed the rules by which music would be made."

    You're just too cool, Hfx.  Nice going. 
    Smile

    Well, I said to act fast.  I guess Spector really did have some, er, special qualities!   ha ha.

    Wonder if there have been any songs written about him ...??  Anyone? 

    I'll have to search for someone a lot tougher to identify ... maybe tomorrow.

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.  Sometimes more.
    Excellent guess.  Great "out of the box" thinking.

    Considering there is a cigar involved, it could have been Bill Clinton.
