Lyricist Gerry Goffin has died at the age of 75 in Los Angeles.
With his then-wife Carole King, Goffin penned huge hits that were all over the a.m. radio airwaves in the 1960’s.
They crafted more than 50 hit records including :”Up On The Roof”.. “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” ..”The Loco-motion”.. and “Natural Woman.”
The pair married in 1959 while they were in their teens – and they divorced in 1968.
Their love affair is the subject of the Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.”
