McLean has never enjoyed complicated, pretentious and non-melodic music.
His inspiration is drawn from simple, beautiful songs. Mention his name and most people will instantly associate American Pie with him. A huge worldwide hit single, it was a brilliant song, a metaphor for the death and rebirth of rock that’s as complex as it is instantaneously accessible.
The album itself sold well on the strength of the title track and his other song, Vincent, and it remained in the charts for 48 weeks and went gold in 1972. One of the most famous folk albums of all time!
