Walter Becker, legendary guitarist, songwriter, and co-founder of Steely Dan passed away on September 3, 2017.
Steely Dan bandmate, Donald Fagen, issued a memorial letter praising Walter’s talent and remarking that he was,
…smart as a whip, an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter… He was cynical about human nature, including his own, and hysterically funny.
Donald also said,
I intend to keep the music we created together alive.
