“Phil Spector, Al Pacino and Keith Richards…” sounds like the beginning of a really good joke — or at least, a pretty booze-filled one.

The HBO premiere of Pacino and David Mamet’s biopic “Phil Spector” proved that the controversial but legendary producer can still bring legends together. Richards — who, as The New York Post ironically pointed out, once dated Spector’s ex-wife Ronnie back in 1964— and Pacino, bonded over their common fandom of Johnny Depp (“I love Johnny!”)

Present at the Porter House after party were producer Barry Levinson, Regis Philbin, Joy Behar, David Chase, Lou Reed, as well as Mamet’s daughter and “Girls” star Zosia Mamet, the New York Post reported.

The pioneer of the “Wall of Sound” is currently serving his 19-year sentence for the murder of Lana Clarkson at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison (SATF) in Corcoran, California.

“Phil Spector” premieres Sunday, March 24, at 9 p.m. EST. Watch the trailer below:
