The co-founder of Steely Dan has died, according to his central website.
Walter Becker, who founded a organisation along with Donald Fagen, had apparently been really ill and underwent medicine final month before succumbing during some indicate this weekend. Becker was 67 years old.
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.
