Biography

Gerry Goffin (born Gerald Goffin, February 11, 1939, Brooklyn, New York) is an American lyricist. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 with former songwriting partner and first wife, Carole King. As of 2008 he has co-written six Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers.

He married Carole King in September 1960, and the husband-wife team pursued a successful songwriting career, notably as part of the famous Brill Building songwriting team. Their breakthrough hit was 1961’s “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, which was recorded by The Shirelles and later, Dusty Springfield. Although they divorced in 1968, the two continued to work together for some years afterward. They are the parents of singer-songwriter Louise Goffin and Sherry Goffin Kondor.
In addition to King, Goffin also collaborated with other songwriters, notably Barry Mann, Russ Titelman, Barry Goldberg and Michael Masser.
