Sorry but the writing just wasn't there for me. It was like reading a school report.
disappointment - could have been such a colourful story.
It is wonderful to hear Carole King tell her own story with her wonderful rhythms and accent.
Carole's honesty and openness is brave and refreshing and her unique perspective as a woman who lived through the 50's and 60's music scenes and then, wrote the book on the 70's makes for a fascinating story. Her life story includes her struggles with her desire to stay true to herself and those she loves - she keeps it real - and that is an inspiration as well. Music history buffs will learn stuff, too!
Yes - it's a great look at part of the history of pop music that isn't often talked about and I read and listen to lots of music books.
Tommy Jame's openness to talking about his success and his failures was very refreashing.
His reference to how he treated those in his personal life vs. his career.
