You may remember a few months ago I told the story of Gerry "Baker Street" Rafferty, who walked out of a London rehab hospital last August 1st, and at that time I wrote that (on November 20th), no one knew where Rafferty was.
Well, they do now. Earlier this week, the Evening Times, which I gather is published in London, reported that Rafferty was found healthy and happy in his home in Tuscany, where he's been for the past six months. "At his house there, which is just north of Florence, he continues to compose and record new songs and music," read the statement from his attorney. "He would like to send a personal thank-you to all of his fans who have expressed their concern for his well-being and he hopes to release a new album of his most recent work in the summer." I bet that album will be a huge hit.
One wonders why it took this long for anyone to look for Rafferty at his house. I suppose it's possible that no one cared to find him, but that is just too awful a scenario to subscribe to.
