From Produce Like A Pro: Songs That Changed Music: Don McLean – American Pie

Don McLean was only 13 years old, delivering his hometown newspaper route when he found out that his idol Buddy Holly had died in a tragic plane accident. 12 years later, McLean took that poignant memory and created one of the most iconic and beloved ballads of all time, “American Pie.” The song takes listeners on a nostalgic journey through rock ‘n roll’s history, beginning with “the day the music died” and traveling across all of the major musical, cultural and political events of the sixties.
