Walter Becker, guitarist, bassist and co-writer for the band Steely Dan, has died at the age of 67. His cause of death was not revealed. The last time the pair shared the stage together was at the massive Classic East and Classic West concerts in NY and Los Angeles respectively earlier this year headlined by Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles. "A lot", while Steve Lukather, guitarist in rock band Toto, sent his condolences to Becker's bandmate Donald Fagen.
Fagen praised his partner as "smart as a whip, an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter".
Fagen described his bandmate on Sunday as "cynical about human nature, including his own, and hysterically amusing". Though a number of Steely Dan October dates in North America were added to Ticketmaster and put on sale, there was never an official announcement.
The pair went on to sell more than 40 million albums and were the only two musicians to remain in the group for its 33 active years.
Becker had missed performances earlier in the summer in Los Angeles and NY.
This shared vernacular was created back when Becker and Fagen were students at Bard and they spoke it over the next half century.
Cameron Crowe, who penned a memorable Rolling Stone article about Steely Dan's sixth album, Aja, back in 1977, reposted the retro article about Steely Dan's second coming on his website as a tribute to the late star.
"De La Soul introduced me to Steely Dan when they sampled this lovely piece of music. Peg". Safe to say, relatively few of the band's legions of record buyers could have picked Becker out of a line-up.
The band temporarily disbanded in 1981, during which time Becker focused on producing records rather than making them himself. It's also because of Becker the group became Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, more than 20 years after an initial break-up. "Walter's recovering from a procedure and hopefully he'll be fine very soon", his band mate Donald Fagentold Billboard.
