An enlightening conversation with singer, songwriter Don McLean who’s living proof that three chords are all you need – and then the rest is up to you.
‘I heard Woody Guthrie play and I heard a verse and a chorus and I thought hey I think I can do that. I wrote everything off a guitar and as I got to be a better guitar player my songs grew.’
I really enjoyed speaking with Don who brings you back to where it all started for him – what he’s learned along the way and how much he still loves playing music today.
“Take control, get your life to the place you want it to be – in the height of my career people thought I had it made but Kenny Rogers was right when he said ‘in truth you’re not having any kind of life at all.'”
