Don McLean is one of America's most enduring singer-songwriters and is forever associated with his classic hits "American Pie" and "Vincent (Starry Starry Night)". Since first hitting the charts in 1971, Don has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide 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 2009 his latest studio album, "Addicted to Black", was released and in 2010 he returned to Europe for a seven-nation tour, including the Royal Albert Hall, London on May 7th.
2011 saw another tour of UK and Ireland, including a sensational appearance at Europe's largest music festival, Glastonbury and in 2012 Don completed his longest European Tour in 20 years.
In 2012 Don was also awarded the BBC Folk Music Lifetime Achievement Award and saw the release of "American Troubadour" on CD and DVD and the worldwide broadcast of the documentary of this name, charting Don's life and career.
