  1. Attended the show in Woonsocket on the 13th………….great show, tremendous energy ………….the guy can still get done

  2. Saw Don McLean Friday night at Newton Theater, NJ. Fantastic show! What an amazing experience seeing him in person! Such energy and passion in every song he did. Started at about 8:45 and went on till about 10:30. One of the best concerts I’ve ever seen, will cherish for the rest of my life.
    much thanks to Don for visiting my neck of the woods.

    Experienced Don at The Newton Theatre November 14th. Such a humble and genuine artist! His music is poetry delivered with beating heart and soul. Don’s passion for folk music and storytelling through lyrics is incandescent and especially refreshing compared to today’s pop music that tends to lack true depth or meaning. Especially thankful that Don stayed after the concert to sign memorabilia and CDs. Now THAT is an artist who loves his fans and his craft. Thank you for a delightful night, Don!

  4. I love the song American Pie! Has so much emotion!! : ) : )
    I don’t know how you felt about it Don but I I loved Madonna’s version of it too. In fact, that’s how I heard about it. In year 2000, I listened to the song probably more than a 100 times within a week : )
    Although Madonna was singing it, it is your song, your Lyrics +Music+Emotion .

    Keep up the good work.

  5. My wife Kathy and I just visited the New York Metropolitan Art Museum in NYC and went right to the Vincent Van Gogh paintings in the Impressionist section. What we saw in his paintings was profound! His think brush strokes cannot be appreciated in seeing a print or photo of his masterworks. We have since doe a lot of reading of books about Vincent (Van Gogh, A Perspective, and Lust for Life) and are amazed by the letters from his brother Theo and Vincent. Also the published letters and newspaper articles by art critics and fellow impressionist painters, like Renoir and Monet. Van Gogh was not appreciated in his time and if it wasn’t for his brother, Theo and Theo’s wife, Vincents works might have disappeared.
    Then we happened to stumble on to Don McLean’s song about Vincent – “Starry, Starry Night”. I cannot justly give all the superlatives we feel about this great song that Don wrote. It is amazing!
    It sums up how we feel about Vincent. By the way, Vincent Van Gogh always signed his paintings – “Vincent” and left off the Van Gogh. he signed only his first name, as did his hero Rembrandt.

  6. Does Don have plans to play the Beacon Theater in NYC? I bet he’ll sell it out

    • Mr. & Mrs. Nick Buccina says:

      According to the tour dates, Don will be playing at BB Kings in New York City. In all my years following Don, this venue was the most intimate and enjoyable. Seating is a little tight with 6 or 8 ft tables with cabaret seating on both sides. Got there around 7:15 PM for an 8 PM show and tip the waiter a $20 and got seats no more than 15 feet from the stage. Had I gotten there a little earlier I could have been closer. They were selling booths for $200+ish and it would have been nice. My only complaint were the ignorant people in the booths behind me who wouldn’t be quiet. I would have liked management to kick them out as they were rude and annoying. Laughing and jabbering during the numbers, I wish Don would have sang American Pie first so the would have left. Otherwise autographs and chance to get Don to sign. Highly recommend, great show….Someday my home city will put Don in the Hall of Fame where he belongs, Peace

  7. Great show last night at The Harvester in Rocky Mount VA. Thanks!

  8. We saw Don last night (20 Feb 15) at the Harvester Center, Rocky Mount VA. Fantastic show and the acoustics were perfect. The center is small, Don and the band talked to the audience like we were long time friends.

  9. Just saw Don at a small concert venue. He was absolutely fabulous. His voice was perfectly strong and clear. We didn’t want him to end the evening! A+++++

    • yeah saw him at stadium theatre past November…..pristine performance & I found out that I’m cousins with him on his mother’s side of the family

  10. Finished it last night and hoped to be able to delete or re-write the original comment. I was excited to receive, anxious to read and after reading it I think Mr. McLean would rather sell the book on its own merit…

    What an excellent book! If you really want to know more about Don McLean’s history and the truth behind his lyrics, read American Troubadour – it’s like listening to a story straight from the horses mouth. The book gives an honest, insightful retrospective that pre-dates his childhood and walks through decades of his musical and personal journey. The threads of the tapestry he continues to weave will always be a part of American music. My compliments to both Don McLean and Michael Cochran. This biography seemed more like an autobiography, and I finished the book with an appreciation for someone who has made and lived with his own choices.
