About Don McLean

   
     
"Thanks for taking an interest in me and in my activities. I have been singing since I was a small child but once I began to play the guitar, I formed in my mind the idea that perhaps I could write songs. Simple rock songs like 'Teenager in Love' could be played with the same chords over and over. I've taught my young daughter how to play this tune, it's that simple. Folk songs were also everywhere in the fifties and the guitar was perfect for them. A simple, beautiful song will inspire most musicians to try to write. Complicated, pretentious and non-melodic music is a turn-off. So are lessons. Keep music in your life and have fun with it and after a time it will grow on you and you will understand the language of song."

Sincerely,
Don McLean

Don McLean's superstar status is always attributed to his remarkable song, 'American Pie' which, in 2000, once again topped the charts worldwide, this time recorded by Madonna. Back in 1972, 'Vincent' ('Starry Starry Night'), taken from the 'American Pie' album gave Don McLean a second number one hit single and another landmark entry in the history of popular music. Between the heady years of 1971 and 2000, Don McLean released over 20 albums and scored major chart successes with 'Everyday' (1973), 'Mountains of Mourne' (1974), 'Crying' (1980), 'Castles in the Air' (1981), 'Since I Don't Have You' (1981), 'Can't Blame the Train' (1987) and again with 'American Pie' in the UK in 1991.

In 2003, Don's song, 'The Grave', was recorded by George Michael in protest at the Iraq War and in 2005 Don released a career retrospective, Rearview Mirror, which included new versions of some of his best songs including 'Vincent' and 'Empty Chairs'.

Don McLean is immortalized as the subject of the Roberta Flack/The Fugees No. 1 hit, ' Killing Me Softly With His Song'. However his greatest honour came in 2004 when Don was inaugurated into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.

Don shared his life story in Alan Howard's biography, 'The Don McLean Story: Killing Us Softly With His Songs', released in January 2007.

Don McLean's career as a singer, songwriter and performer is everlasting.
