The Autograph will reveal everything

5
Don McLean has said that the original manuscript of American Pie (for our younger readers who don’t know what that is see below) will ‘divulge everything there is to divulge’ about the meaning of the track. Coincidentally he is also try to sell the 16 page manuscript for $1.5 million. See here and/or here.

  1. Maybe the answer is that the song is about academic life:
    "February made me shiver, with every paper I'd deliver"

  2. Ok, but if he sells it for $1.5m, how much will the tax receipt be for?

  4. I remember hearing of an interview with Don wherein he was asked the meaning of 'American Pie.' His response was something like, "It means I'll never have to work again."
