RIP Gerry Rafferty

Gerry Rafferty died yesterday. If you have no idea who he is, he’s responsible for this slice of genius:

This is one of my favourite songs, especially in the summer. Holy sax solo, Batman! Not to mention, if it’s good enough for Lisa Simpson, it’s good enough for me. Foo Fighters also did a guitar-heavy version as a B-Side which is worth checking out:

I read the BBC obituary at lunchtime – I had no idea Rafferty was one half of Stealer’s Wheel! You probably know their hit ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’.

I’m blasting ‘Baker Street’ on repeat as I type. Thanks, Mr Rafferty.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
