September 29, 2017 "Walter Becker was the BEST.

Now I am 57 and I am in love with it.
Thank you Walter !" - Javier Valdes (Toulouse, France)
September 23, 2017 "Thank you Walter for the wonderful music the story of my life is in those songs you produced with Donald. They help me through life in general and are great as my go to place, my rock.You are sorely missed, my condolences to your family and the rest of the band." - Karen Scattergood (Co Meath Ireland)
September 18, 2017 "Didn't fully appreciate and have an admiration for the music of Steely Dan until the year of 1993. As a pre-teen, I'd hear "Reeling in the Years", but had a preference for R and B music. I was assigned to a promotions company through a temporary service in Miami, Florida in 1993. My genre of music is Christian Contemporary/Gospel. However, as my favorite melodic instruments are piano, keyboard, saxophone, trumpet, and bass guitar I was fascinated with the time changes and jazz undertones of a mixed Steely Dan CD. My favorite song collaborations that featured Walter Becker and Donald Fagen are "Deacon Blues, Aja, Josie, and Home at Last". I was truly sad to hear of Walter Becker's passing on September 10, 2017. He was an excellent musician and guitarist in his own right. Someone left a comment of condolences with a "Deacon Blues" recording on YouTube. He is truly missed, and I will pray for his wife and children." - Trenese Carey (Miami, FL)
September 18, 2017 "One of the best memories of my life is taking my JBL speakers out to my parents back yard and playing Steely Dan Albums.
The music made me feel so good I thought it must be magic. Thank you so much Walter

Favorite Song: Dr Wu
