Gerry Rafferty dies aged 63

Singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty has passed away at the age of 63.

Rafferty was best known for his solo hit "Baker Street". With its haunting saxophone solo the track reached number 3 in the UK charts and no 2 in the US.

The Scot was also a member of the band Stealers Wheel with whom he secured another huge hit in 1972 with Stuck In The Middle With You.

The song underwent a renaissance after being featured in Quentin Tarantino's hit 1992 movie Reservoir Dogs, when it was used as the audio backdrop to a gruesome scene.

Rafferty, who is survived by his brother Jim and his daughter Martha, was said to have died peacefully at his Dorset home with family by his side.
