Don McLean is one of the most iconic singers in popular culture, most recognised for his song, “American Pie', a ballad about the deterioration of teenage culture in America and the loss of innocence which has been named by RIAA as one of the top five songs of the 20th century.

His catalogue of songs have been recorded by Madonna, Garth Brooks, Josh Groban, Drake, Weird ‘Al' Yankovic and countless others. In 2015, one of McLean's four handwritten manuscripts of the lyrics to “American Pie” was auctioned by Christies, selling for just over $1.2 Million.
