Gerry Goffin--one of the greatest songwriters of all time--has died

Maybe not much name recognition these days, but Goffin–a Brill Building songwriter who teamed up with Carole King and wrote some of the greatest songs in pop and soul history–has died at age 75.

Dude had a songwriting credit on 59 top 40 hits in the sixties, I’d detail them all but I’m not sure there’s space.

I’ll just leave this quote by my buddy Dan-O:

“‘The Beatles as we know them wouldn’t’ve existed without this guy’ is not a sentence I throw around much… but yeah, the Beatles as we know them wouldn’t’ve existed without this guy.”

Wow! So many great songs.
