Walter Becker passed away
One chapter is complete. Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were THE Steely Dan . They will make no songs anymore.
Their and Steely Dan’s music have carried me from my teenages to my adulthood. When I was a high-school student suffering fever in my bed I kept on playing Aja. I was too sick to turn the LP and kept on listening to the A-side hours and hours.
I was brainwashed. Thank God.
That is how my Steely Dan-life began.
Their musical talent, weird and daring lyrics with superb musical talents created something everlasting.
I am humbly honoured there was a man called Walter Becker. Without him my life could have been less enjoyable.
While writing I am listening to one their master pieces Doctor Wu.
…my daddy do not live in that New York City no more…
See you Walter one day.
