The Rolling Stones ‘Ticket’s @ 2′ song today is “Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty. It’s about a guy who dreams of owning a house, but he’s a drunk, and cannot achieve that goal. He drinks to forget what he doesn’t have, and never realizes he’s a rolling stone with no direction.
Rafferty was a member of Stealers Wheel, who had a hit in 1973 with “Stuck In The Middles With You.” His first band was a folk duo called “The Humblebums.”
Noted sax player Raphael Ravenscroft played the sax solo, he’s played on records by Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Abba, Alvin Lee and many others.
When we play “Baker Street” between two and three we’ll take caller #7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see The Rolling Stones Saturday May 18th, at the Honda Center.
