Steely Dan was successful opposite a 1970s with some outrageous hits that were co-written by Becker himself, including Rikki Don’t Lose That Number, Deacon Blues, Kid Charlemagne, Hey Nineteen, and My Old School.

The organisation afterwards had a resurgence in a 1990s with several large albums then, too, including Two Against Nature, that warranted itself 4 Grammys including, impressively, Album of a Year.

Becker was seen as so successful for Steely Dan, and music in general, that he was inducted into a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and desired ones — rest in peace.
