He certainly will be after the end of today - if only he could get royalties in Heaven!

Marko - you're doing it YET AGAIN.

This was discussed here last night - even before it was reported on the BBC.

So are you, why not just ignore the thread? Besides Gerry Rafferty was a legend, he deserves as many threads as possible Laughing

Rafferty was very good, but hardly a legend. If he were, his music (not just Baker Street) would have been played as much whilst he was alive as it has been today!

Not a legend, perhaps, but he made some good music.
Besides he made a comfortable living from royalties from "Baker Street" alone. That song earned him an average income of 80,000 PA, which is not bad. And "Stuck in The Middle with You" was also a nice little earner
