  • songwriter Gerry Goffin, RIP

    Gerry Goffin's name was not as universally known as that of his former wife and songwriting collaborator, Carole King. But the lyrics that Goffin wrote -- for such early-rock era classics as Will You Love Me Tomorrow, (You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman and Up On the Roof -- have remained in the pop canon for decades.

    Goffin -- whose death Thursday at 75 was confirmed by his current wife, Michelle -- met and married King, a budding composer, while both were teenagers. Eventually, they would write more than 50 top 40 hits, among them Little Eva's The Loco-Motion, The Drifters' Some Kind of Wonderful, the Everly Brothers' Crying In the Rain and The Monkees' Pleasant Valley Sunday. - [USA Today]

  • Singing Bob Dylan's praises the Brothers and Sisters of LA

    In the summer of 1969 a dream team of backing singers assembled in LA to record an album of Bob Dylan covers. Dorian Lynskey talks to the makers of the now reissued Dylan's Gospel

    Talking to Merry Clayton is such an uplifting experience it should be prescribed on the NHS. The 65-year-old from New Orleans had the quintessential soul singer's upbringing preacher's daughter, raised to sing gospel and she speaks with the soaring cadences of the pulpit, radiant with enthusiasm.
