Mini Bio (1)

One of the most underrated singers of the 20th century, Allan Clarke will be remembered as the singer of "He Aint Heavy He's My Brother" and the lead singer of the Hollies for nearly 40 years. A powerful and passionate vocalist in the same class as Roy Orbison, he never let fame go to his head and remains a remarkably down to earth person. He left the Hollies three times, once in 1972 to go solo but returned when the band almost fell apart without him. In 2000 he quit for good due to his wife's health. Allan moved on and can be found in the German DJ charts as sometime guitarist for German dance pop act Et Cetera, who like to cover his songs.
