Last year I made this post about Gerry Rafferty, comparing him to John Martyn. It was with some amusement that I saw my posting duplicated almost word for word, by Martyn’s biographer in Sunday’s Sunday Herald.
Some people I think have been slightly bemused at the reaction to the singer songwriter’s passing. Some see him purely as the writer and performer of slick, sometimes cheesy pop songs but the tributes I think have at least made some revise that opinion.
The clip below is a Daily Record ‘podcast’ about Rafferty’s passing. Billy Sloan, like John Peel, was a Rafferty fan.
