RIP Walter Becker

At first it looked like it might be another internet celebrity death hoax.  Then it showed up on his website.  Then it started hitting the news sites.

Walter Becker, one half of Steely Dan, has passed away.  Legendary songwriter. Legendary musician.  I managed to see one of the earlier Steely Dan reunion tours at Harborlights in Boston.  It was a magical show.

67 seems too young to me.  This one hurts.

Rest in peace, Walter Becker.
