    Steely Dan was my first rock concert. I was 14 in 1974 and got to see them with Dr. Hook for $2. Steely Dan and a good set of headphones are a wonderful thing. Rest gentle Mr. Becker.

    Ah, did not know until you posted. Sad, I love Steely Dan. Big part of growing up in the '70's listening to the car radio...

    RIP.

    Saw the Dan twice, 1996 in Hamburg and 2008 in Chicago, fond memories of cruising with The Royal Scam playing .

    So depressing watching your heroes pass away .
