Don McLean - Vincent - Lobster Festival - Rockland, Maine - 1 Aug 2015 - YouTube


Many of you will remember this song from the past!!!   (See link above.)


My wife and I went to the annual Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland Maine and attended the Don Mclean concert on 1 August 2015.




"Vincent" is a song by Don McLean written as a tribute to Vincent van Gogh. It is also known by its opening line, "Starry Starry Night", a reference to van Gogh's painting The Starry Night. The song also describes different paintings done by the artist.


McLean wrote the lyrics in 1971 after reading a book about the life of the artist. The following year, the song became the number one hit in the U.K. and No. 12 in the U.S.


In 2000, PBS aired Don McLean: Starry, Starry Night, a concert special that was filmed in Austin, Texas.

Another Song that Roy Orbison made famous and sung by Don Mclean
