Steely Dan

Miscellaneous
Edward Hessler

Walter Becker of Steely Dan died a couple of days ago (age 67). He was the other half of a partnership (Donald Fagan) that began at Bard College.

Their music was a mix of jazz and pop with a special intelligence. College rockers.

They were unusual in many ways, including as Bill Wyman wrote "And as for stardom, well, neither Becker nor Fagan could be described as heartthrob materials." 

Read Wyman's loving tribute which includes a performance on Letterman. 

Here is another song. It has an ad which can be skipped in a few seconds.
