    1. Don has been a hero of mine for aeons, so reading this promised to be a labour of love Alan Howard cleverly includes the title of the song, paraphrasing of course,written about DM Killing Me Softly with His Song as part of the title of his book Having experienced DM live a number of times I know what is meant Roberta Flack of course recorded the song very successfully.I try to keep my reviews shortish as don t tend to read long ones myself, or at best skim read them I fear this may be different [...]


    2. Enjoyable read Packed with facts so that I feel I know Don McLean much better and can appreciate what he brings to the world through his music Guess he doesn t like Peter, Paul Mary as they weren t mentioned in this book.
