I came here to read about 100 people dying in a terrorist attack in Afghanistan, and it’s not here. But I can read about people playing the saxophone in Scotland, at least! Hell of a song!

I believe he wanted a bit of peace & quiet.. some amazing tunes could be heard in the Stress is caused by not playing saxophone enough shirt garden… rest in peace Gerry. I heard it playing in my head as soon as I read this. Didn’t know he was dead. He had some hard social comments in his songs. A realist among dreamers.World Class guy…and a true professional.
Lucky enough and an honour to have met him when I was very young and still an inspiration to myself. No ego, no arrogance, and always laughed and spoke to you in a down to earth way. Still sad to see of his passing. Happy 70th Birthday Gerry Rafferty. Hope you’re having a great time up there creating new Albums. If you listen to enough of his music, you start to realize Rafferty was Scotland’s, Brian Wilson.
