Stealers Wheel Singer Rafferty Missing Since August

    Scottish singer Gerry Rafferty, best known stateside as the voice of Stealers Wheel (the band’s song plays during the infamous "ear scene" in Resevoir Dogs), has been missing since August. Rafferty was kicked out of London’s Westbury Hotel last August, and then immediately went to St. Thomas Hosipital where he was treated for alcohol addiction and liver failure. Rafferty left the hospital on his own, but he has failed to contact anyone since August. While some of Rafferty’s friends and associates speculate the singer is living abroad and trying to get himself together, others, including ex-bandmate Tony Williams fear the worst. Williams has enlisted the help of the police department in hunting up Rafferty, but so far there are no leads as to his whereabouts. [UPI]
