RIP Gerry Rafferty

In the late 70s, Gerry Rafferty ruled the airwaves.  I can remember groovin' to "Baker Street" and "Right Down the Line".  What I didn't realize was that he also co-wrote the song "Stuck in the Middle" when he was part of the band Stealers Wheel.  Sadly, he had issues with alcoholism and had suffered from liver failure during the last year of his life.  This is for you Gerry!

For years I thought Bob Dylan did Stuck in the Middle - only to find out two years ago it was not true. He was a very talented song writer and singer.

Yes he was truly gifted.

She is an teacher - close to your age and often talks about things of her childhood as well as whatever is on her mind. She has many followers.

I like your site - I recently started recollecting 8 tracks - and always looking for any recording on Apple Records.
