I’ve just posted an interview with iconic “American Pie” singer/songwriter Don McLean. He’s recently been honoured for achieving over five million U.S. radio plays of “American Pie,” and three million for “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night).” I spoke to him about his place in contemporary music, and balancing artistic expression with commercialism throughout his career. You can read it now in the Interviews section.
