Gerry Rafferty dies at age of 63

I lived a secret life back in my college radio days. Nights were spent listening & playing industrial music very loudly. If it was Skinny Puppy all the better. But the days were reserved for the sappiest ’70s ballads I could get my hands on. Rupert Holmes and his Piña Colada song (actually titled “Escape”) and Gerry Rafferty with his classics “Right Down The Line” and “Baker Street” were some gems. Sad to hear that Rafferty passed away earlier this week. The 70s birthed a special breed of song writer, sad to see them pass.
