The 5 O’clock Shadow: Thursday June 3, 2021


The Shadow’s on a wait, I mean a roll this week.

The Shadow version of this song went to number 3 on The Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the rock album and adult-contemporary charts and earned the performer two Grammy nominations. Jeff Beck played guitar on this version.

The album this was originally released on cover photo is not the artist.

The original artist used to be a firefighter. Of the career he said, “It wasn’t good for my nerves, that kind of work. I’ve got high blood pressure. I get upset easily. I don’t think that was a proper career alternative for me.”
