Goodbye, Gerry.

Reading that Gerry Rafferty has died I thought I should post a video of his best known hit, "Baker Street."  Reading an obituary on him it sounds as if Rafferty was one of those artists who really shouldn't have been famous.  He didn't seem to be the kind of person who wanted or could cope with the pressures of fame.  It's also interesting to read that he was an early collaborater with Scottish comedian Billy Connolly when the latter was still a folk musician, and apparently told Connolly his future was as a comedian.
