This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Gerry Rafferty (vocals)


BANDS:
  • The Mavericks
  • The Fifth Column
  • The Humblebums
  • Stealers Wheel
  • Gerry Rafferty Band

BIOGRAPHY:

Great singer, he was born in Paisley, Renfrewshire in Scotland on April 16th, 1947. Some of his songs are among the most known tunes, such as ´Stuck in the middle with you´ (with Stealers Wheel), or ´Baker Street´.


THE MAVERICKS


His first known band was The Mavericks, with his mate Joe Egan, but don´t know if there were more band members involved.


THE FIFTH COLUMN


Next band was The Fifth Column, again with Joe Egan. They released a single, ´Benjamin Day / There´s nobody here´.


THE HUMBLEBUMS


Gerry Rafferty joined The Humblebums in 1969, thus becoming a trio:

But Tam Harvey left after a few months.

Now The Humblebums is a duo again:

Gerry Rafferty

After a couple of albums, they parted ways in 1971.


GERRY RAFFERTY BAND


After the split of The Humblebums, Gerry Rafferty started his solo career, releasing his first album, Can I have my money back?.

But he soon formed a new band with old mate Joe Egan. The band was called Stealers Wheel.


STEALERS WHEEL


This was the first lineup of Stealers Wheel, circa 1972:

STEALERS WHEEL #1
1972
Gerry Rafferty
vocals, guitar
Joe Egan
vocals, keyboards
Rab Noakes
vocals
Roger Brown
guitar
Ian Campbell

Around 1973, Egan and Rafferty change the band completely:

Gerry Rafferty

Joe Egan
vocals, keyboards
Paul Pilnick
guitar
Tony Williams
bass

They had released the album Stealers Wheel in December 1972.

But after some time, Rafferty left them for a while.


GERRY RAFFERTY BAND (again)


Gerry resumed his solo career again, although he was to rejoin Stealers Wheel soon.


STEALERS WHEEL (again)


This was the lineup for Stealers Wheel around 1975:

STEALERS WHEEL #?

Joe Egan

Gerry Rafferty

Ken Elliott
Dave Wintour
bass
Peter Robinson

Andrew Steele

GERRY RAFFERTY BAND


Now again resuming his solo career, he released few (but great) albums in the period between 1978 and 2010, also touring with great musicians.

To me, it has been very difficult finding info about the Gerry Rafferty tours and backing musicians, so I just write what I know for sure. But there are many other players that toured with him: Lindsay Scott (in a tour in the Benelux), Arran Ahmun, Jeff Bannister, Liane Carroll, Julian Littman, and many others. I hope I´ll be able to expand this info in the future...

This was the great live band that backed Gerry Rafferty on his 1978 tour:

1978
Gerry Rafferty

Roger Brown

Gary Taylor

Tommy Eyre

Raf Ravenscroft

And this was the live band that backed Gerry Rafferty around 1980:

He sadly died in Bournemouth, England, on January 4th, 2011, due to a liver disease. He was 63. He will be missed.
