Carole King Visits Rock Hall of Fame
CLEVELAND, OH - Having been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the songwriting duo of Goffin and King in 1990, Carole King finally had the chance to visit the I.M. Pei edifice that houses the Rock museum. While in Cleveland, King took a mini-break from her whirlwind multiple-state tour in support of Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry, and was given a tour of the exhibits by Museum curator, Howard Kramer. "I couldn't imagine coming to Cleveland and not seeing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum," says King.
King was one of the first women inducted into the Rock Hall, albeit in a non-performing capacity. Although her groundbreaking 1971 album, Tapestry continues to rack up accolades and be prominently placed in just about every Best Album list, King has yet to be inducted into the Rock Hall as a performer.
