kind. His hit singles and albums are numerous, and you could honestly repeatedly go through his discography and never get
bored, as his music works on so many levels and is much more professionally done than many artists of today care to attempt.

Born in 1945 New York, Don McLean has always known that music would be a big part of his life, as he was already
performing for friends and family as a youngster. As he grew older he continued to be obsessed with music and was recording
music while still in prep school, eventually recording his first album, "Tapestry", in 1969. Through hard work and repeated
failed attempts, Don eventually found a label to sign him and released the album. The album didn't get the attention it deserved,
but Don Mclean was soon to become an international music phenomenon with his 1972 release of "American Pie". The album was
a massive success, charting all over the world and making Don a star. His future releases from there were consistently praised
and well respected for his talent and incredible songwriting abilities. In total Don has released twenty amazing albums in
the decades since his debut, all of which are well worth listening and will change the way you think about music.
Throughout 1969 Don McLean worked tirelessly to find a label to release his debut album "Tapestry", and after
over 70 rejections he finally found Mediarts who released the album in 1970. The album had a slew of hit singles, but frankly
people weren't listening, but that changed with the release of his second album, "American Pie". Released in 1972 under the
major label United Artists Records, American Pie was a certified success throughout the world, with it's title track and many
more hit singles topping the charts and making Don McLean a household name.
Don McLean Trivia
has ever said that music hasn't done any real good in the world, then you have plenty of reason to turn to them and tell them
just how wrong they are. While it's true that Don McLean's music has touched people in a multitude of ways, but his song "The
Legend of Andrew McCrew" helped a man postmortem in a way that no one else could have. Don had read about a homeless man in
Dallas who had died when leaping from a moving train, and to make matters worse his body was picked up by a carnival that
went ahead and mummified it and toured it across the south. Don's song hit the radio and raised money necessary to give Andrew
McCrew a proper burial and a headstone to go along with it.
