Gambaccini on Gerry Rafferty's struggle with fame
Scottish singer and songwriter, Gerry Rafferty, best known for the international 1978 hit Baker Street has died at the age of 63 after suffering a long illness.
Music journalist and broadcaster, Paul Gambaccini, said it was a cruel irony that Baker Street, a song about the singer's unhappiness with the music business, brought him more of the fame he hated.
"He just wasn't of the constitution to deal with the music business, or to respect it. And thus he found fame and artistic success incompatible, and he became a wanderer, a lonely man, " said Mr Gambaccini.
