    I’m a struggling guitarist/singer from Scotland. I have a great deal of admiration for Gerry (bordering on jealousy). He came up with some great tunes for us all to enjoy. My favourite is probably Right Down the Line. I am involved in jamming sessions with some friends regularly and although we have jammed out Stuck in the Middle a couple of times, we never have tried any of his solo tunes. I’ll put that right next time we get together. Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. I just wonder what he might have achieved had it not been for the booze.
