Profile:
Scottish guitarist, singer and songwriter. Rafferty was best known for his solo hits "Baker Street", "Right Down the Line" and, with the band Stealers Wheel, "Stuck in the Middle with You".

Rafferty and Joe Egan formed the group Stealers Wheels in 1972, producing several hits. In 1978, he recorded his second solo album, "City to City", which includes "Baker Street", his most popular song and a radio mainstay.

RIP Gerry. Baker Street was one of the outstanding songs, and records of the 1970s.
