Bonnie Raitt video of Gerry Rafferty song features gays and lesbians in the mix

Bonnie Raitt

On her new album, Slipstream, the legendary blues rocker Bonnie Raitt covers Scottish singer Gerry Rafferty’s 1978 hit “Right Down the Line.” The video, by Steve Lippman/FLIP, features couples, several of whom are gay, filmed in the San Francisco/Noe Valley neighborhood. It’s a stunning take on a classic song. Rafferty, also known for the hits “Baker Street” and “Home and Dry,” passed away in January, 2011.
