Gerry Rafferty, RIP

Gerry Rafferty

The singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty, whose songs such as “Stuck in the Middle with You”, “Baker Street” and “Get it Right Next Time” soundtracked the 1970s, has died aged 63 after a long illness.

His family said he died at home peacefully with his daughter Martha this morning.

The Scot was born in Paisley, near Glasgow, played with Billy Connolly’s folk outfit the Humblebums, and co-founded the soft-rock group Stealer’s Wheel, before enjoying a successful solo career. Baker Street, released in 1978, was still netting him £80,000 a year more than 30 years later. -[The Guardian]

“Baker Street” is a bonafide 70s staple, and “Stuck In The Middle” is famous for among other things, being the soundtrack to a famous (gruesome) scene in Reservoir Dogs (viewable here if you can stand it). R.I.P. Gerry Rafferty. More videos below…
