    Should have put this on this post, Walter Becker of Steely Dan has died of natural causes at 67 years old. He produced A&M group China Crisis in the 80's. Walter Becker - Wikipedia Matt Clark Sanford, MI
     
  2. And the A&M connection there is the Rosie Vela album ZAZU that contained work by Steely Dan's Donald Fagen and Walter Becker.

    RIP.

    The Walter Becker thing is not too much of a shocker--he had been ill, missing the two most recent Steely Dan gigs. Donald Fagen had commented at both shows that Walter was recovering from a "procedure." Yet 67 is young. The question is whether or not Steely Dan will continue. My guess is that it will, in some shape or form.

    Becker had a small role in Rosie Vela's Zazu album, and produced one of the China Crisis A&M albums, Diary of a Hollow Horse. (He had previously produced Flaunt The Imperfection.) One of my favorites was his production work on three tracks from Blue Pacific by Michael Franks.

    I'm amazed that Walter Becker wasn't in the news more. Steely Dan *did* create many enduring classic rock hits that are still played to this day...pretty impressive list, for sure. He wasn't a household name, but then neither was Glenn Frey and look at all the death press he got.

    It should, considering Donald Fagen is the lead singer...he could do a Walter tribute in each show.
