Reviews

'If you've ever wanted to walk alongside a world class musician ... this is your starting point ... well worth the read. Just be wary not to be found singing too loudly, too badly and in public -- Cerys Matthews The Times I read her memoir exclaiming, 'Oh, did she write that?' again and again Daily Mail King's story is a valuable addition to the story of American rock and pop Sunday Express What a memoir, intelligent, honest, self-effacing, well-written Independent

Author description

Carole King is a singer, songwriter, and pianist. King and her former husband Gerry Goffin wrote more than two dozen chart hits for numerous artists during the 1960s, many of which have become standards. As a singer, King's album 'Tapestry' topped the U.S. album chart for fifteen weeks, in 1971, and remained on the charts for more than six years. She has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. In 2009, Carole King was inducted into the 'Hit Parade' Hall of Fame. She holds the record for the longest time for an album by a female to remain on the charts and the longest time for an album by a female to hold the No.1 position, both for 'Tapestry'.
