    Crazed cult leader Charles Manson wants some music advice -- and he's turning to new jail mate Phil Spector for some help.

    Manson welcomed the legendary music producer to California's Corcoran State Prison where he's serving a 19-year sentence after being convicted in the murder of actress Lara Clarkson by requesting he stop by his pen for a chat, the music man's wife told The New York Post .

    "It was creepy," Phil's wife, Rachelle Spector told ThePost. "Phillip didn't respond."

    Shortly after Spector arrived at his new home, a guard delivered a note penned by Manson, that said "he considers Philip the greatest producer who ever lived," according to Rachelle.

    Both have a common interest in music. Spector earned a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for a lifetime of churning out top albums such as the Beatles' "Let it Be" and hits like the Ronettes'  "Be My Baby."

    Manson, who tried to befriend famous musicians during his stint in a band, put out a handful of songs, like "Cease to Exist," that picked up some traction after he rose to fame as a crazed killer.

    Spector's publicist thinks the aging Manson -- whose been serving out a life sentence for orchestrating the 1969 murder of Actress Sharon Tate and three others -- wants to talk business.

    "I think Manson wants to glean some musical advice from Phil, who was a '60s music god with his 'Wall of Sound,' " he said. "But Phil's like, 'I used to pick up the phone and it was John Lennon or Celine Dion or Tina Turner, and now Charles Manson is trying to get a hold of me!' "
