The Gerry Rafferty Interview

Jerry Gilbert, ZigZag, December 1975

GERRY RAFFERTY rarely comes up in interviews, seldom works on the road and is in London even less often. And yet when it comes to writing tasteful pop songs – songs that you remember long after they've dropped out of the Top Twenty or whatever – he's just about the best and consequently the most underrated in Britain.
