Scottish comedian/actor Billy Connolly was the inspiration behind the song STUCK IN THE MIDDLE WITH YOU, written by Gerry Rafferty, a former bandmate of his. Connolly, who was in band HUMBLEBUMS with Rafferty, left the group after his comedy work was getting in the way of Rafferty's songwriting. Rafferty went on to write Stuck In The Middle With You, about his relationship with Connolly, for STEALERS WHEEL. Connolly says, "I was the joker and he was stuck in the middle with me."
