Musician
    (April 16, 1947-January 4, 2011)
    Member of The Humblebums (1968-71)
    Frontman for Steelers Wheel (1972-75)
    Recorded 'Stuck In the Middle With You' (with Steelers Wheel)
    As a solo artist recorded 'Baker Street,' 'Right Down the Line,' 'Home and Dry,' 'Night Owl,' 'Get It Right the Next Time,' 'Take the Money and Run,' 'The Royal Mile (Sweet Darlin'),' 'Bring It All Home' and 'Sleepwalkers'
    He is reclusive.
    Infighting led to the break-up of Steelers Wheel, then legal battles kept him from recording between 1975-78.
    He refused to tour the U.S. to promote 'Baker Street' and its album, 'City To City.'
    There was renewed interest in Steelers Wheels when Quentin Tarantino used 'Stuck In the Middle With You' in his 1992 film 'Reservoir Dogs,' but bitter feelings left no chance for a band reunion.
    His father was deaf (but still enjoyed singing).
    To fulfill a contractual obligation after leaving the Humblebums, he recorded a tongue-in-cheek solo album, 'Can I Have My Money Back?'
    As singles, 'Stuck In the Middle With You,' 'Baker Street' and 'Right Down the Line' all sold more than 1 million copies.
    His 'City To City' album sold over 5.5 million copies and his 'Night Owls' album sold over 2.5 million copies.
    The haunting, memorable sax in 'Baker Street' jump started the career of session saxophonist Raphael Ravenscroft, who went on to work with Pink Floyd, Robert Plant, Marvin Gaye, ABBA, America and Kim Carnes.
