Gerry Rafferty exhibition opening in hometown

Late songwriter Gerry Rafferty’s life and work will be celebrated at an exhibition in his hometown of Paisley, Scotland. Personal artefacts belonging to the Baker Street hitmaker, including his golden discs, guitars, and handwritten lyrics, will go on display in Paisley Museum from Friday (07Mar14), on loan from Rafferty’s daughter Martha.
She says, “My father’s hometown meant a huge deal to him and helped inspire a lot of his work, so it is fitting to be able to hold this event here in Paisley.”
Rafferty’s legacy will also be celebrated with an eight-day music festival in Paisley in April (14).
He died from liver failure in 2011 aged 63, after a long battle with booze.
