A Canadian falls for American Pie

STORY BY: Doug Short
YEAR: 1971
LOCATION: Kingston, ON

Doug tells us a story of how he was in his first year at Queen's University, eager to see a Blood, Sweat & Tears concert. When the opening act, Don McLean, walked out alone with an acoustic guitar, people were not impressed. But after McLean played "American Pie", he was blown away, and wasn't interested in seeing Blood, Sweat & Tears anymore! Thanks for sharing, Doug.
