Will you still love me tomorrow? Gerry Goffin’s gonemain
Co-writer and sometime husband of Carole King, Goffin, who has died aged 75, was a fount of pinpoint lyrics in New York’s final decade as the world’s songwriting empire.
He married King in 1959 when he was 20 and she 17; they divorced in 1968. What they wrote is everlasting.
Among his other hits: Take Good Care of My Baby (Bobby Vee), Go Away Little Girl (Steve Lawrence, Donny Osmond), The Loco-Motion (Little Eva, Kylie Minogue).
