Following collaborations with John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, Dion DiMucci, and the Ramones in the 1970s, Spector remained largely inactive. In the 2000s, he became infamous as the subject of two trials for murder and a Murder (United States law)#Degrees of murder in the United States/second-degree conviction.
