RIP Gerry Rafferty

"Baker Street" is the song by him most of us will remember, that and "Right Down the Line" and, with Steelers Wheel, "Stuck in the Middle with You."

He was 63 and died of liver disease due to long-time alcoholism. Damn disease. It's true what they say: untreated alcoholism leads to one of three places--death, jail, or a mental institution.
