That was posted under the sub thread - Great bands that had one stinker. Maclean is a legend but Vincent was awful.

I love Vincent (the song), but I do feel slightly guilty about doing so.

The problem isn't with the song so much as the concept. Maclean was seen as a reactionary folk poet - much the same as Dylan, and like Dylan he was seen as selling out to commercialism with Vincent. It was a bit shameless of him really after the success of "American Pie".

I forgave him when he released Homeless Brother though.

Got something to say?
