I wish there was some further news on Mr Rafferty. For some unfathomable reason I seem to be inordinately interested in Gezza's ongoing condition. Death's door or a comfortable middle and old age? Devon, come on man, help us out here - I've got some hot Fleetwood Mac goss, honest guv.


He (I think) was on The One Show (I think) some time this week, I remember flicking on the TV and caught the very very end of the piece. They were in Exeter cathedral and I'm afraid that's about all I can say. For those more curious try looking it up on iplayer, it was definitely BBC1 as barring CNN it's the only English channel I can get.


It was a feature on Raphael Ravenscroft, the saxophonist on Baker Street, there was no mention of our missing hero's whereabouts.


Ok, I'm sorry for not paying attention keep up the good work.


He is dead.


Raphael Ravenscroft? So he is.

Rather strange obit which seems to be more about a dead 12 year old girl.

Funeral today I suppose if he believes in reincarnation, he'll get it right next time.

Man, look at the redness of Rafferty's face on that front page pick. I've never seen a man so crimson, not even 92-era Brian Clough.

I never picked him for anything B) ! I feel like a bum, humbled.


Same here. But in my defense, I had never heard of him.

What a shame to have lost Gerry Rafferty. But he made a half a dozen songs that were A1 classic fantastic.

When I looked at the advanced issue of the 2011 at 11pm on the 31st Dec, I had the idea I had missed out on a decent pick. For me I'm sure he bouced about, just off the bottom of my 68 name longer list. I missed the news he was back in hospital and that news alone would have added 28 points to his scores - then he would have been in my 50 name list for sure!
Well done the DeathList for it's choice.

I thought they were a little slow off the mark.

I was kicking myself for missing him on the DDP, so I put him first on my NDP...every cloud and that!


I thought that the Dutch thing doesn't start until the 10th?
