Okay this is just getting sad. We have lost way too many really great musicians lately.
I'm really sad to report that Gerry Rafferty the musician behind some of the most fantastic songs including "Stuck in the Middle with You" and "Baker Street" has died at the age of 63 after a long illness.
"Baker Street" was made famous due to the popularity of the rift. I mean its probably one of the more recognizable rifts in the recent history of rock n roll.
