Unhappy Gerry Rafferty (singer) dies at age 63

Gerry Rafferty, former member of Stealers Wheel, who is best known for songs "Stuck in the Middle with You" and "Baker Street", has passed away following a long illness.

My heart sank when I heard this news. Another page from my teen years gone forever. I remember the days, driving with the windows down and listening to this song cranked!


Here's a You Tube video for "Baker Street" :





Enjoy.


RIP
Gerry Rafferty

Honestly I didnt know the name, and although I've always been a metal head, I've always really liked that song! Its got a smooth flow, while being strong and confident at the same time.
A real loss.
