Jake Bugg recently received a phone call from hero Don McLean, in response to a letter he sent to the singer through his fan site.
Speaking about the incident during an interview with Zane Lowe, Bugg said the email had been found by the websites manager when they were clearing the inbox. Don McLean was then given Jake Bugg’s number, and they spoke for about 40 minutes. Jake Bugg said he could hardly get a word in and described the entire experience as “pretty crazy“.
Bugg had previously met the American Pie singer as a child, when his parents took him to see his hero.
