The musician who played what's been called the most famous saxophone solo of all time has died.

Raphael Ravenscroft played the eight-bar riff on the 1978 Gerry Rafferty hit Baker Street. He died yesterday, aged sixty, at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, but spent much of his young life in Dumfries, where his father lived.
