David Byron, lead singer for Uriah Heep, was born on this day in 1947 (he died in 1985). I have a very distinct memory of some hired band playing the following song to entertain the college students who took over the 1972 Democratic delegate selection caucus in the 4th congressional district of Georgia. It’s Heep’s “Walking in Your Shadow.”
