ON THIS DAY: 1969, The Hollies recorded ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,’ which became a top 10 hit the following year in the US and went all the way to No 1 in the UK. The piano player on the track was none other than Elton John. The track was re-released in late 1988 in the UK following its use in a television commercial and went back to No.1 for a second time.
