March 2010

Among the special guests were Ronnie Pudding, Eric "Stumpy Joe" Childs, and the bearded bassist from the 2000 premiere performance of Spinal Tap's "Big Bottoms." - Carole

NEW YORK, NY, March 15, 2010 - Carole King was invited to present at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony. She presented The Ahmet Ertegun Award to the following songwriting inductees: Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Jeff Barry & Ellie Greenwich, Jesse Stone, Otis Blackwell, and Mort Shuman. For Greenwich, Stone, Blackwell, and Shuman, this will be a posthumous, yet most-deserved honor.

In a stunning moment during the highly-acclaimed Troubadour Reunion tour, a photograph slide show presentation of wild horses, formerly of Idaho, played to the entire audience while Carole and the band performed "Way Over Over".  Photographer Elissa Kline has been documenting wild horses for many years through the lens of her camera.
