Remembering Gerry Rafferty, Gone On This Day In 2011

Today marks the 8th anniversary of the passing of Gerry Rafferty, the Scottish singer-songwriter known for his solo hits "Baker Street", "Right Down the Line" and "Night Owl", as well as "Stuck in the Middle with You" recorded with the band Stealers Wheel.

After a lifetime of drinking, Rafferty's body began failing him and in 2010 he was admitted to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital where he was put on a life-support machine and treated for multiple organ failure. After being taken off life support, Rafferty rallied for a short time, and doctors thought that he might recover, however, he died of liver failure at the home of his daughter Martha in Stroud, Gloucestershire, on January 4 2011.
