Don McLean is one of America’s most enduring singer-songwriters and is forever associated with his classic hits “American Pie“”Vincent (Starry Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air,” “And I Love You So” and “Crying”. Since first hitting the charts in 1971, Don has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and, in 2004, was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. His songs have been recorded by artists from every musical genre, most notably Madonna’s No. 1 recording of “American Pie” in 2000 and George Michael’s version of “The Grave” in 2003, sung in protest at the Iraq War.
In 2007, Don McLean shared his life story in Alan Howard’s biography, The Don McLean Story: Killing Us Softly With His Songs. In June 2011 Don performed for an audience of 100,000 at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts.
Don is touring the UK and Ireland in May/June and his new album “Botanical Gardens” is set to be released, including the Youtube hit “Waving Man.“
