Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty, who is perhaps best known for his 1972 hit “Stuck in the Middle With You” and the 1978 soft-rock classic “Baker Street”, died Tuesday morning, according to The Guardian. Rafferty, who long suffered from liver disease, died at age 63. Though his most popular songs were AM radio staples throughout the 1970s, Rafferty’s career was resurrected by director Quentin Tarantino using “Stuck in the Middle With You” in his 1992 cult classic Reservoir Dogs. The Glasgow-born singer, who once played with Billy Connolly’s folk group Humblebums and co-founded the folk rock band Stealers Wheel, released his last solo album, Another World, in 2000.
