Condition Critical For Gerry Rafferty

Gerry Rafferty, who came up with one of the biggest FM radio hits of 1978 when his song Baker Street, a song featuring soaring saxophone parts from Raphael Ravenscroft took off, was reportedly on life support with dim prospects for survival after suffering from kidney failure about a week ago.  The singer, hospitalized in Bournemouth, England, was expected to be transported to London if his condition is stable enough to permit the move.  Rafferty, who has battled alcoholism, got his first break in the band Stealer's Wheel when Stuck In The Middle With You became a big hit.
His most recent recording, released through his web site last year, is titled Life Goes On.  We hope it does for the Rafferty, who has had a rough go of it in recent years.
