Gerry Rafferty has responded to the "missing for six months" stories. He's fit and working again:
A statement given to Channel 4 News said: "Contrary to reports Gerry is extremely well and has been living in Tuscany for the last six months.
"At his house there, which is situated just north of Florence, he continues to compose and record new songs and music.
"He would like to send a personal thank-you to all of his fans who have expressed their concern for his wellbeing and he hopes to release a new album of his most recent work in the summer of this year."
It's nice to have a happy ending for once.
