The 5 O’clock Shadow: Wednesday January 20, 2021
The original songwriter/performer was inspired to write this after hearing Bob Dylan’s “Blowin in the Wind”. He couldn’t believe the song hadn’t been written by a black man and was determined to write a protest song in support of the civil rights movement.
The original artist is one of the four men depicted in the new film One Night in Miami.
The Shadow band are often teased for copying some classic rock bands a little too closely but Robert Plant himself has praised their sound.
