And for good reason. Both of these were popular hobbies in the year Just graduated high school and was getting ready to head off to college. Nice memories. The man behind the saxophone was Raphael Ravenscroft, who in addition to having the best-ever name for a session saxophonist, claims to have authored the riff. The testimony of Ravenscoft, who died last year, seems to be refuted by the existence of an early demo of the song, where the guitar replaces the sax. I probably did more music with him than any other musician. This is a great song.

The musician behind one of the most recognisable saxophone solos - on Gerry Rafferty's hit Baker Street - has died. Raphael Ravenscroft, 60, who found fame almost overnight following the release of the track, died following a suspected heart attack early on Sunday. Scarlett Raven, Ravenscroft's daughter and a contemporary artist, said it was "incredible" to see how many people her father had inspired. She said: "He is an absolutely incredible man. You could tell from the way he played that he put his heart and soul into his music. I think he was very proud of Baker Street and that it made people feel good.

Released as a single in , it reached No. It spent four weeks at No. In October , the song was recognised by BMI for surpassing five million performances worldwide. Named after Baker Street in London, the song was included on Rafferty's second solo album, City to City , which was his first release after the resolution of legal problems surrounding the break-up of his old band, Stealers Wheel , in In the intervening three years, Rafferty had been unable to release any material because of disputes about the band's remaining contractual recording obligations. Rafferty wrote the song during a period when he was trying to extricate himself from his Stealers Wheel contracts; he was regularly travelling between his family home in Paisley and London, where he often stayed at a friend's flat in Baker Street. As Rafferty put it, "everybody was suing each other, so I spent a lot of time on the overnight train from Glasgow to London for meetings with lawyers. I knew a guy who lived in a little flat off Baker Street. We'd sit and chat or play guitar there through the night. Rafferty was reading the book, which explores ideas of alienation and of creativity, borne out of a longing to be connected, at this time of travelling between the two cities.
Dating does not necessarily mean an exclusive relationship. Maybe it won't be a big deal. To embrace each others needs and interests, it seems I am destined to long for this connection into eternity.
