Carole King has been romantically linked to:View Past Relationships
Who can be romantically linked to Carole King...and how closely?
One of music`s great songwriters, her 1971 album "Tapestry" spent more than 300 weeks on the US charts.
She is a composer-performer who wrote numerous hit songs for other performers before achieving fame on her own with the album "Tapestry" in 1971. Among her compositions during this early period, usually written in collaboration with first husband Gerry Goffin, were "Take Good Care of My Baby," a #1 hit in 1961 for Bobby Vee; "Go Away, Little Girl," a #1 hit for both Steve Lawrence (1963) and Donny Osmond (1971); "The Loco-Motion," a #1 hit for both Little Eva (1963) and Grand Funk Railroad (1974); and "Pleasant Valley Sunday," a top-ten hit in 1967 for The Monkees. She herself had a top-20 hit during this period, as well, 1961`s "It Might As Well Rain Until September," also co-written with Goffin.
Scary in the idea it could be a little overwhelming to have 70 or 100 clowns in a public space. Intriguing in that it could be something interesting. I`m up for any kind of public art.
There is a downside to having one of the biggest-selling albums ever.

On Jan. 26, the Beatles will be honored at the Grammy Awards with a Lifetime Achievement Award. And now it looks like the band’s two surviving members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will perform on the show.
However, the press release accompanying the news says only that “each will perform,” suggesting that they will play separately. Still, it doesn’t say they won’t play together. In other words, anything can happen.

One fine day in 1957, a 15-year-old named Carol Klein got off the express train from Brooklyn to Manhattan with schoolbooks under one arm and sheet music under the other. She wore bobby socks, white sneakers and a black skirt with a pink poodle embroidered on it.
Starting with the “A”s in the phone book, she began visiting music industry executives, hoping that her aggressive piano playing and perfect pitch would land a contract. At Atlantic Records, impresario Ahmet Ertegun called her “soulful” but sent her on her way. ABC-Paramount invited her... Read More

"I think Sheila did a terrific job and the book is extremely interesting, but it brought back things that I didn`t... Read More
