Singer Gerry Rafferty, best-known for his 1978 smash "Baker Street" and album City to City, has been found alive and well. He has been in his home in Tuscany since he checked himself out of a hospital in August.
Rafferty is writing and recording songs, according to a press release provided by Rafferty's solicitors.
Fans and friends became concerned when Rafferty disappeared without a trace after being admitted to a London hospital in August 2008 for liver problems and alcohol issues. After a few days in the hospital, Rafferty checked himself out, leaving his personal effects behind in the hospital.
