    Amen to that Teddy; I still remember his song Baker Street with much affection. May he rest in peace.

    I feel out of place because I have not heard of him, why 2 weeks before burial was it a suspicious death?

    I remember buying the "City to City" album back in the Days of Vinyl. It seems as though that album is no longer with me (likely donated to a sibling in my move from the Chicago area to the Philadelphia area).

    Of course, Gerry Rafferty was the voice behind NOT ONLY "Baker Street" & "Right Down the Line," but also Top-10 hit "Stuck in the Middle" (you know- "Clowns to the left of me/Jokers to the right/Here I am..."), by the short-lived entity "Stealers Wheel."

    Reading between the lines of my (very old) edition of the 'Harmony Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock,' it seems as though the man had a life-long distrust of Professional Management- a distrust that didn't always work to his benefit...
