The 5 O’clock Shadow: Monday February 22, 2021
With all her early encounters with music celebrities, starting with Jackie Wilson planting a kiss on her at a show in 1951 to a chance encounter with David Bowie after his first show in the U.S., the front-woman for The Shadow band seemed destined for rock royalty.
The original artist was born John Allen but later renamed James after his father. Before achieving personal success he played back-up with Sam Cooke, Little Richard, Wilson Pickett, Ike and Tina Turner, and The Isley Brothers.
The song mentions a lot of colors. He rarely played this live.
