    Rest in Peace Walter

    Walter Becker, Steely Dan Co-Founder, Dead at 67 - Rolling Stone LG Man and I talked about Steely Dan on the trail today before hearing of this.
    Suicide by single speed. Work in progress.

    RIP. I saw Steely Dan in the mid-70's during the Pretzel Logic tour. Very memorable show. I regularly listen to their recordings, even after all these years. Sad news.

    I saw them in London in '74, and I think that was the best lineup ever. They were awesome on disc, but mind-blowing live back then...
    What I have also found telling over the years is that many of the best live audio engineers use Steely Dan recordings to 'tune' the audio system...
    It's all Here. Now.

    The concert band I saw had 2 drummers. They ended the concert with each band member in succession delivering an extended solo, then walking off the stage. At the end, the two drummers were left, then one drummer, then show over. It was fabulous.

    RIP Walter. Steely Dan was a truly iconic sound.

    That being said, there's a lot of music out there that is terrible and truly sucks. But to hate a band, I mean really, really hate their music, like in "I'd rather be on fire than listen to it", is something completely different, reserved for one or two bands/artists in a whole lifetime. For me, that band is Steely Dan. I hate Steely Dan.
    I would advise not taking my advice.
