Donald “Don” McLean III (born October 2, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter best known for “American Pie“, an RIAA “Song of the Century” (position 5 of 25) which is about the death of Buddy Holly and others. The 1971 album of the same name also includes “Vincent”, about the painter Van Gogh.

McLean’s other well-known songs include:

  • “And I Love You So” was covered by Elvis Presley, Helen Reddy, Shirley Bassey, Glen Campbell, Engelbert Humperdinck, Howard Keel, Claude François, and a 1973 hit for Perry Como.

  • Vincent“, a tribute to the 19th-century Dutch painter, Vincent van Gogh. Although it only reached No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, it proved to be a huge hit worldwide. “You can’t change a note in that song” (Mike Mills, REM). It was a No. 1 hit single in the UK Singles Chart. This song was covered by NOFX on their album titled 45 or 46 Songs That Weren’t Good Enough to Go on Our Other Records, and also appears on the Fat Wreck Chords compilation Survival of the Fattest. “Vincent” was also covered by Josh Groban on his 2001 debut album.
