Bill Medley – The Artist

William Thomas Medley (born 1940) is an American singer and songwriter, best known as one half of The Righteous Brothers. He is noted for his bass-baritone voice, exemplified in songs such as “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'”. Medley produced a number of the duo’s songs, including “Unchained Melody” and “Soul and Inspiration”. BiIl Medley is a successful solo artist, and his million-selling #1 duet with Jennifer Warnes “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” won a number of awards. He also collaborated with Giorgio Moroder and scored a UK hit in 1988 with a version of “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”.

He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother – The Song

‘He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother’ is a ballad written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell. Originally recorded by Kelly Gordon in 1969, the song became a worldwide hit for The Hollies later that year and a minor hit for Neil Diamond in 1970. It has been recorded by many artists in subsequent years. Bill Medley collaborated with Giorgio Moroder in 1988 with his version of “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” and it was used in the Rambo III film starring Sylvester Stallone. The song title comes from the religious story of a little girl carrying a big baby boy. Seeing her struggling, someone asked if she wasn’t tired. With surprise she replied: “No, he’s not heavy; he’s my brother.”

Rambo & His Headband – The Shape

Modelled into the silhouette of Sylvester Stallone as Rambo donning his famous red headband as seen in the film Rambo III. Rambo ties the makeshift headband around his forehead to keep his hair or sweat out of his eyes, and to intimidate the enemy. Rambo III is a 1988 American action film directed by Peter MacDonald and co-written by Sylvester Stallone, who also reprises his role as Vietnam War veteran John Rambo. A sequel to Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), it is the third instalment in the Rambo franchise, followed by Rambo.
