Gerry Rafferty RIP

#1
Got to say it's a bit sad news for me.Trudging up and down gigs with my band, I always played a couple of his numbers as I did at home every day.
They always went down well and not because of my singing or playing.
It was his music and not just Baker St or Stuck in the Middle.
I think he composed some wonderful songs and his voice was superb for that type of songs.
I had hoped he would write more but I knew he a had a serious booze problem[most musicians/Vocalists do!] but I never thought he would pass this early.
Still his Baker St and Stuck! will be played as long as music is played,you can't get better than that. RIP

First Pete Postlethwaite and now Gerry, not a good start to the year and I never had either of those names down.
What about Mick Karn, the bass player from Japan (the 80s group, not the country), because he's just shuffled off this mortal coil too.

Never heard of him

Fcuk me, that is a lame and obscure celebrity.

I heard the production assistant who worked on the original Ace Ventura movie also died.

Bob Holness played saxophone on "Baker Street". Maybe.

Raphael Ravenscroft, who received a one-off session fee of £27. The cheque bounced, and Ravenscroft had it framed and hung on the wall of his lawyer’s office.

Apparantly, Rafferty is going to be buried next to Ronald McDonald and Heath Ledger.

Clown to the left of him, joker to the right.

Coat.....Hat....Taxi.
