• Gerry Rafferty Band
  • Roger Chapman's Shortlist
  • David Gilmour Band
  • Willie & The Poorboys
  • Willie & The Poorboys (1985, Passport)
  • Solo albums:
  • Her father didn't like me, anyway (1979, Portrait)
  • A superb player, he entered into music history for playing the famous sax riff on Gerry Rafferty's 'Baker street' song. Who hasn't heard this tune? :)

    While a prolific studio musician, it has been hard for me tracing his live bands. So, as I know I'm missing lots of things, any help would be very welcomed!!


    This is one of the fantastic lineups of Gerry Rafferty band. This must be near 1980:


    Raf joined singer Roger Chapman (from Family fame, later in Streetwalkers, and now with his own solo career), who was assembling a live band for promoting his brand new album Chappo. Although Raf doesn't play in the album, he was chosen for the superb live band:

    A killer lineup for a great artist!


    After having released a solo album, About face, David Gilmour assembled a superb live band for touring:

    They started the tour on March 1984. Jody Liscott broke her arm on July 1984, and she was replaced for a few gigs by Sid Evans (or was Sue Addams or Sue Evans?).

    This was a parallel band formed by Rolling Stones then-member, Bill Wyman. Thought as an all-star band, Bill called many of his friends to play with him, both on albums and concerts. The album features all these great people:

    In March 1985, it was filmed a video, with a slightly different lineup:
