One of my favorite folk singers. He is old now but he still sings beautifully. Don McLean was the inspiration for Roberta Flock's "Killing Me Softly."
"Inspired by a Don McLean gig at L.A.'s Troubadour, folk singer Lori Lieberman jotted down the idea for the song, then took it to Gimbel and Fox (of Happy Days fame). Flack heard Lieberman's recording on an in-flight radio station and "absolutely freaked," she said. She tracked down the songwriters, then spent three months in the studio with Dorn perfecting the track."
