Equally fluent in the idioms of rockabilly, country, and pop music, Lee Hazlewood's finest hour involved the crafting of a feminist anthem which in 1965 made Nancy Sinatra a star. In his time he also mentored Phil Spector, whose own famed sound (dubbed the "Tower of Power") was one which Hazlewood first worked out while in collaboration with Duane Eddy - namely overdubbing and reverb.
Hazlewood died August 4th of renal cancer. He was 78.
