After releasing the massive anthem "American Pie", Don McLean certainly had the chance to lay low for a while and bask in his success. Did he choose this route? Hell no.

Aside from writing one of the biggest songs of all time, Mr. McLean would also write such hits as "Killing Me Softly", and "Vincent".
