Mr American Pie Don McLean, author of gems such as Vincent will be in concert at the Ancienne Belgique on the 21st of April. Since his success in the early seventies, McLean stayed a simple and humble man, accepting, for instance, that Madonna cover his song American Pie in a very dancing style. Isn’t that ironic for a song depicting « the day the music die » a.k.a.
the death of Rock legend Buddy Holly. But Don McLean believes that in every satire there is a sincere respect of the original.
