The following blog post is from early January 2012-the following was written upon the first anniversary of Gerry Rafferty's death. While this is someone who has been a a part of the soundtrack of my life, Rafferty remains mysterious to me.
For me, music evokes a time and a place which creates my own playlist or personal soundtrack. I was thinking of my playlist on the one year anniversary of musician Gerry Rafferty’s death. Rafferty’s heyday was throughout the 1970s as a member of the band Stealers Wheel and later, as a solo artist. He wasn’t a household name. Rather, his voice was woven into Americana much like his more popular contemporaries like The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John or Billy Joel.
