buddhuu Obit: Gerry Rafferty (1947 - 2011) (41) RE: Obit: Gerry Rafferty 04 Jan 11


Aw, feck. :-(

Well played that man. You've earned your rest.

My favourite Gerry song is 'Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway'. Funnily, I prefer Finbar and Eddie Furey's version because of Finbar's unorthodox, soaring pipe accompaniment - but it was Gerry's song. My old band used to do 'Stuck in the Middle', and I loved the old Stealers' single 'One and One is One'.

I'm sorry he had such a hard time later on.

I'll raise a glass to him. I know there's a degree of irony in that gesture in light of Gerry's illness, but I'll mean it kindly. The drink is a big part of my life too. Maybe I'll go the same way.

Cheers, Gerry.
