Where did that phrase come from - He ain't heavy, he's my brother
Stan St. Clair
Used as a reminder of the common roots, heritage and bonds of all mankind, this was made famous in modern times by a wildly popular ballad written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell, and originally recorded in 1969 by Kelly Gordon at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, later recorded by the Hollies, Neil Diamond and Elton John.
