GUEST,Tunesmith Carole King rewrites history! (74* d) RE: Carole King rewrites history! 12 Sep 18

Interestingly, I was talking to a friend of mine recently and he has writen lots of books on rock and pop music, and, has read every pop/rock autobiography known to man. And he was surprised that I was so disappointed with Carole for “ editing out” almost reference to Neil in her book. I guess he has read so many autobiographies that he has seen this sort of thing over and over.
   The problem with Carole’s attitude is that we denied the full story, and, to make matters worse, the full story of the years where she was learning her craft and breaking it to the record/publishing business. And, that part of her story is close to meaningless without reference to Neil’s contribution.
Again, I would recommend Mudcatters to watch the Sedaka documentary on Youtube as it is an very entertaining look at the early days of Rock/pop music and having Neil sit at the piano and discuss how he created his hits and arrangements is - for musicians - fascinating.
