Gerry Rafferty: Lost (?) and found

He's had two big hits; Stuck In The Middle With You in 1972 as a member of Stealers Wheel, and Baker Street in 1978 as a solo artist.
Lately the Scottish singer-singwriter Gerry Rafferty has been in the press due to dissapearing from a wrecked hotel room in London last June in the middle of a boozy breakdown.

In the news it is being reported that he had disgharged himself from the hospital diagnosed with liver problems and gone missing for the past six months. But a cousin said he'd been in contact with friends shortly after leaving the hotel and not "missing" at all.

More on Gerry Rafferty and other survivors and non-survivors of the 1970s Glasgow rock scene can be read in this article.

And here's Stuck In The Middle With You and Baker Street.
