Gerry Rafferty Has Died

Gerry Rafferty, who wrote and sang one of my favourite songs, 'Baker Street', has died.  Sad news.  His other major song, 'Stuck In The Middle With You', was prominent in Reservoir Dogs.

Dear Todd

My second serious girlfriend Rosamond Harrison gave me a copy of 'City to City' for my birthday in 1978 and from then on I was hooked. I bought all his other albums myself. I knew that he had become an alcoholic recluse but was hoping that he would be able to make a comeback which unfortunately never happened. He was a gigantic talent who will be sadly missed by millions of his devoted fans including me.

Best wishes from Simon
