    "Baker Street" saxophone player Raphael Ravenscroft dies

    The musician behind one of the most recognisable saxophone solos — on Gerry Rafferty's hit "Baker Street" — has died.

    Raphael Ravenscroft, 60, who found fame almost overnight following the release of the 1978 track, died following a suspected heart attack early on Sunday.

    Wow great player. RIP
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
