Don McLean at the age of five had developed awareness in all kinds of music and would spend endless hours listening to the radio in his early years alongside his father’s records. He was so sure of himself that by the age of sixteen he had decided to choose singing as his profession and there has been no looking back for him ever since. Early onset asthma in his life meant that Don faced a constant challenge in what he cherished the most – music. For strenuous singing exercises, he literally fought the battle with asthma, taming his breathing pattern. His hours at swimming helped him in developing breath control which would permit him to sing for longer periods. It is to his sheer hard work and passion that has overshadowed asthma and created room for rigorous singing regime. His discipline manifests in songs like "Crying" with continuous phrases without so much as taking a breath.
In the excitement stirred by American Pie, Don became a foremost concert attraction and was able revive classic concert numbers through his live performances including the famous numbers of singers like Frank Sinatra and Buddy Holly.
