Prison and time have not been kind to Phil Spector, a legendary music producer and wearer of wigs.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation released two mug shots of the 74-year-old man serving prison time for the 2003 murder of Lana Clarkson to The Smoking Gun. Spector is balding, scruffy and has long scraggly hair. But at least in July 2013 he had something to smile about?

The later photo was taken last October when Spector was moved to a prison health care facility in Stockton that provides medical and mental health care to the state's sickest inmates, according to the Associated Press. But because of medical privacy regulations, the state can't say why he was transferred there.
