R.I.P. Gerry Rafferty

My Outlander Purgatory friend, Carla sent me an email about Gerry Rafferty's passing - and included this song (along with Baker Street...and he also sang "Stuck in the Middle with You").  I hadn't realized Gerry Rafferty was from Paisley. That's where my husband's grandfather was from - and his family still lives there. Gerard Butler is as well. It's a great town; it was our home base on my last (and only, sob!) trip to Scotland.

I tweeted this a bit earlier--I had no idea the "Baker St." and "Stuck in the Middle" guys were the same guy! RIP...

And for you Reservoir Dogs fans.... enjoy:

Baker Street was a mainstream hit in the late 1970's. I much prefer his music, like this one, with a Celtic feel. He will be missed. :( -Terri A.

Anonymous w/o a signature name:

"Baker Street" still remains a radio staple today with its signature sax solo.

Listen here and watch the original band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkS169P_Eeo&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=MLGxdCwVVULXf4UC-Hid8veqvRs92VdJDA
