Default RIP Walter Becker

He was an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter. I have every Steely Dan Album ever made - including Walter Becker's solo projects.

Very sad day indeed. Very upsetting...

Rest in peace dude.

Sad news indeed. I first started to listen to Steely Dan in my college dorm in the 1970's. Lots of great songs. Earlier this year, I listened to all of their albums in order of release on Spotify and Tidido (before they shut that one down, at least in the U.S.).

A virtuoso guitarist and great songwriter.

Well the danger on the rocks is surely past
Still I remain tied to the mast
Could it be that I have found my home at last
Home at last

RIP Walter Becker.
