Walter Becker Of Steely Dan Dead At 67

Walter Becker, co-founder of the legendary band Steely Dan, died Sunday September 3, 2017.

Anyone who has read this site for more than five minutes knows how respected the Dan is around here.

His bandmate and collaborator Donald Fagen wrote a tribute, posted on Rolling Stone’s website. Read it here, or listen with brief commentary.

One awaits the inevitable “Steely Dead” tour.

  1. Thanks for the linkback. Good reports. That’s a good T’Oob channel, informative and nice delivery.

    R.I.P. Walter.

    Since wdydfae went all music, obituaries have been taking up more and more posts. Is it just a natural flow of things, or do a lot of luminaries seem to be bowing out these days?
