Walter Becker RIP

just two weeks ago was listening to Steely Dan on the way to Smida...
"Do it again"
didn't hear the song in years...or not on my own choice.
Steely Dan is an aquired taste. I thought when i was young and snotty they were a metal band (steely ?). so, when i listened to their songs for the 1st time i was like "ouch". no.  in 1996 i was in Oslo and heard them on great speakers. i was blasted. "Do it Again"
 Rolling Stone has called them "the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies".
Steely Dan was founded in 1972 by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. They rocked, they ruled, they grooved.
Becker died on Sept. 3d. He was 67.

RIP Walter Becker....
