Hi Mr. Riordan,

Paulette is the reason that Phillip and John Lennon recorded at the Record Plant.  She lived with the owner's sister.  She offered Phillip free studio time and that's how things actually unfolded at the time.  

What version of Leonard Cohen's gun story do you believe?  Did Phillip hold the gun to his head, neck, or chest?  I will tell you one thing - Phil Spector never told Cohen he loved him.  He couldn't stand the man and Cohen confirmed that Phil Spector would not return his calls and he had to telegram him to see if he would finish the album.  He did - without Cohen which led to his grotesque remarks about Phillip in the news media.

Cohen certain is unique.  He's able to steal from people; perjure himself; slander people and the news media glorifies him.  I suppose Roshi was right - religion sells.

The situation is obscene.

All the best,

Hi CIA, NSA, and FSB,

You understand guns and ammunition.  Check out this video interview of Spector's former assistant, Devra Robaitaille.  I spoke to her constantly when I worked for Marty Machat.  She never once mentioned Phillip, guns, or his holding a gun on her.  Paulette Brandt worked for Apple, ABKCO, Spector Records, dated Phil Spector, worked in his Pasadena house, worked for him for 12 years from 1991 until 2002, and never once saw him with a gun.  She was at Phil Spector's house when Cohen was there as their work together began.  She also never saw George Brand with a gun.

Cohen testified during my trial that Spector held a gun to his HEAD.  An automatic.  The prosecutor's motion, Spector case, re. "prior bad acts" says Spector held a semi-automatic to Cohen's CHEST.  In this interview, the interviewer says Spector pressed a gun to Cohen's NECK.  Cohen told me for 20 years this never happened.  

I have never said that Cohen was the reason for Spector's conviction.  I have said that just about every single news story about Cohen (including the one I forwarded you today) involves Phil Spector and usually a version of this so-called gun incident.  At times, the gun was replaced with a cross bow and sometimes there's a bottle of wine involved.

Harvey Kubernik was present for these sessions and said Phil Spector was quite focused and there was NO circus like atmosphere.  He did mention Cohen guzzling from a bottle of tequilla and Cohen has mentioned in interivews that this was a dark period for him and he was out of control.  He also lied to the BBC when he told them he had recently spoken to Spector who was no longer mad.  During my alleged trial, he testified that he never spoke to Spector again.  I know that's true because I have spoken to both men about this situation.

Hal Blaine told detectives that in 37 years in the studio he never once saw Phil Spector with a gun.  Gold diggers with motive have including those who sold their stories to the news media.

Janis Zavala was with Phil Spector when Robaitaille first worked for him.  She thought she targeted him.  Steven Machat believes she was disgruntled.  

Why was I able to open Phil Spector's doors in Pasadena and go outside for cigarettes whenever I wanted?  

Paulette knew John Lennon.  Yoko Ono said the story was completely embellished.  Leonard Cohen is not unique.  He's a bald faced liar who has obviously committed criminal tax fraud and stole from me, Machat & Machat, and Phil Spector.  

There is no way in hell Phil Spector said to Leoanrd Cohen "I love you."  He could NOT stand the man.  He refused to continue working with him.  Marty begged Phillip to mix the album and he did.  Cohen wasn't there and doesn't know how the tapes got the studio or who took them.  Armed gunmen sound better for the news media.  Cohen knows how to tell tall tales - see his insane stories about his involvement with CIA's MKULTRA, Bay of Pigs, Yom Kippur War, etc.  As Paulette noted - why didn't Phil Spector take John Lennon's tapes home under armed guard since they were far more valuable than Cohen's?  Good point.  She was around during the Spector/Lennon sessions and is the individual who encouraged Phillip to work at the Record Plant.  Her roommate's brother owned it.  

Since Robaitaille didn't work for Phillip until 1974, and the incident allegedly happened in December 1973, how was she present for the John Lennon incident?  Everyone else thought Spector shot the ceiling but Robaitaille said it's the thermostat.  They recorded at the Record Plant because of Paulette who also knew May Pang quite well at the time.


PD:  But he (Phil Spector) actually put a gun to your head?  Is that correct?
Cohen:  That’s correct.
PD:  It was a revolver?
Cohen:   No, it wasn’t a revolver.  It was an automatic.
PD:  But you weren’t actually -- you didn’t feel threatened when he put a gun to your head?
Cohen:  No, sir.

Harvey Kubernik, a journalist, was present for the Spector/Cohen recordings (as were many others).  He didn't witness an out of control Spector:

Harvey Kubernik:

The track Cohen and Spector are particularly interested in listening to right now is "Don't Go Home With Your Hard-On," the album's all-out stomper, with hosts of loud horns and pulsating beat that's hammered all the way home by dual drummers playing in perfect synch. Above it all, comes Cohen's menacing, gritty vocal work, which holds center stage in a most unexpected but effective way. "I can really belt 'em out, you know," says the singer, as he takes a swig of Jose Cuervo from the bottle.

But that is hardly enough for Phil Spector--whose brilliance only starts with the songs he writes, but really gets to shining when he gets those songs into a studio. And so it is obvious that the Leonard Cohen sessions have been important to him--almost therapeutic. He certainly seems to be taking his work extremely seriously: He has been decidedly less theatrical in the studio of late; the usual Spector circus atmosphere seems to have been replaced at least in part by a rediscovered, or new interest in the music itself. And that seems to be very good medicine, both for Spector and for Cohen.
