Actually Marty, Van Morrison was never a member or otherwise involved with The Shadows of Knight. I suspect your confusion stems from "Gloria", originally performed by the Irish band Them (with Van Morrison as their vocalist), which was later covered by the seminal Chicago-area garage-punk band The Shadows of Knight (Jim Sohns, vocals).

The Shads scored the U.S. hit out of the song in 1966, though both versions are well-known at this point.

You are correct, sir. I did confuse the two bands. I think I have both versions of "Gloria" around here someplace.
