I know that Don McLean may not be the kind of artist that will get into the Hall of Fame. In fact the only song people know is American Pie, but Americanb Pie is one of the most famous and most legendary songs ever written. It is the mostfamous tribute song that I know.`

In addition to "American Pie" McLean other famous songs are "Vincent" (a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh, which is played at the Louvre) and "Castles in the Air"

Recently visited the Hall and loved it but was baffled at the omission of several artists/groups especially Don McClean. "American Pie" is one of the most scoping and visionary songs in rock history, and "Vincent" ain't too shabby either. To call him a one-hit wonder is short-sighted. I believe he is way overdue for induction.

I love don mclean and all his works, not just American Pie. Given that the rock and roll hall of fame is no longer inducting legends like the beatles and the stones (already in) I think Mr Mclean and Stevie Ray Vaughn deserve consideration.
