GUEST,DTM Carole King rewrites history! (74* d) RE: Carole King rewrites history! 10 Sep 18

Neil mentioned Carole in his book, I'm sure of that (having read it many years ago). The song "Oh Carol" was written using what Neil & Howie Greenfield deemed as one of the most popular girl's name at the time. They thought this would be a good marketing ploy. I don't know what Carol thought of Neil then (or what she thinks now), but she was inspired to write a song (albeit a B-side) in answer to Neil's record. Whether it was a shared joke between them or just a cheap shot to mock him, I don't know.

"Oh Neil" - Carole King
