The man who wrote the song about the day the music died!

Don McLean is an American singer-songwriter, most famous for his 1971 hit songs American Pie and Vincent.

McLean’s career as a recording artist started only two years prior to American Pie. With the album Tapestry, Don McLean entered the folk scene where he made friends with Pete Seeger and joined the circuit.

When McLean’s indie label Media Arts was sold to United Artists, he got an unexpected chance to make his second album for a major label. McLean delivered American Pie and became world-famous almost overnight.

Also worth mentioning is how Don wasn’t afraid to sing covers, Sam Cooke‘s Wonderful World is a good example.
