The 5 O’Clock Shadow: August 21, 2019
Like Gladys Knight and the Pips earlier this week with Heard It Through the Grapevine, many people are surprised by the original artist on this track, probably due to the psychedelic production used on the song. According to the original artist Jimi Hendrix once told him that this was his all-time favorite song.
The original artist was a member of a band at the time the song was released but later shot to fame as a solo artist. The shadow artist, who had already been fighting cancer for years, suffered a stroke while watching the 2016 presidential election results and died a little over a week later.
