About Gerry Rafferty
You know that soft rock song "Baker Street" with the mentally contaminating saxophone hook? You can thank Gerry Rafferty for that one. He grew up in Scotland and tooled around in folky bands like the Humblebums and then Stealers Wheel who hit with "Stuck In The Middle With You," (a song that enjoyed an unexpected after life when it made it on the soundtrack for the Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs) before embarking upon a career as a singer-songwriter. But despite that career redirection, when "Baker Street" topped the charts in the late '70s, Rafferty refused to tour the record.
