Carole King

13 Times Carole King Was The Queen of #TBT

Posted by on

Carole King has had quite a life in the music biz, and she has the Twitter feed to prove it. Carole’s tweets are a veritable treasure trove of vintage photography of a long and storied career. We’ve compiled a few of our favorites in honor of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical coming to the Winspear Opera House June 7 – 19.

1. This great black & white from her Laurel Canyon days

Complete with bell bottoms!


2. This intense performance shot from 1971

Straight from West Hollywood’s historic Troubadour.


3. That time tickets to a Carole King show only cost $6.50

Won’t take you too far these days.


4. With her good friend & collaborator James Taylor

James played and sang on many of Carole’s early solo recordings and the two have performed together many times over the years.


5. 15-year-old Carole in 1957

2 short years before she met and married Gerry Goffin.


6. Even further back to 1946

Learning the piano at age 4.


7. This dreamy look from 1977


8. This test pressing from “Another Pleasant Valley Sunday”

Co-written with her first husband and songwriting partner Gerry Goffin and made famous by her friends The Monkees! Catch them at the Winspear Opera House June 28. Tickets and info here.


9. Speaking of Gerry Goffin…

Here’s Carole setting the record straight on who he is and isn’t. Can anyone identify the non-Gerry mystery man?


10. Carole and Gerry later in life

Gerry left us just 2 short years ago. It’s nice to see that though they didn’t stay married, they did stay friends.


11. With legendary producer Sir George Martin and Celine Dion

Also pictured is Dion’s late husband and manager René Angélil.


12. That classic smile all the way back in 1976


13. Modern day Carole King

As beautiful as ever.
