b. c.1944 Scotland. The former partner of Gerry Rafferty in Stealers Wheel, Egan recorded two low-key albums after their final disintegration. Out Of Nowhere contained the charming ‘Back On The Road Again’, a turntable hit on UK radio. Both albums were similar in structure to the three Stealers Wheel collections and demonstrated the considerable songwriting ability of Egan, who sadly was unable to find his own ‘Baker Street’. After a number of years of musical inactivity Egan worked with Rafferty by adding some backing vocals on his 1993 album On A Wing & A Prayer. He also benefited from the use of the Rafferty/Egan composition ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’ in the film Reservoir Dogs that same year.
