Carole King Reacts to Second Rock Hall Induction, Talks Potential Return to the Stage

While the honor is richly deserved, King never planned on becoming a famous singer in her youth. When she initially entered the music business as a Brill Building scribe in the late ’50s, she only saw herself as a songwriter. “I became an artist [in the late ’60s], not reluctantly, but it was just the right circumstances that brought me into being an artist,” King recalls to Billboard. “And really, as a songwriter, you’re always the artist when you’re presenting the song to another artist. Through Lou Adler and with James Taylor’s help, I took ownership of being the artist who sang my own songs.” Fans of King’s warm, wistful style will be thrilled to hear that she is not only planning on attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...

Now, there’s the jazzy, ‘70s-inspired Daddy’s Home (out this Friday, May 14), for which the artist born Annie Clark decided to don a blonde, bobbed wig cut w...
