His consummate musicianship showed in Steely Dan's unique style of jazzy rock music.

Thank him and Donald Fagen for such great songs.

He was a unique talent. Steely Dan was always kind of different. I really loved Reelin In The Years, along with many others.

They seemed like a band apart to me. Such a unique sound.

My first experience was an old 8-track my uncle handed down to me. A "favorite hits" that I learned like the alphabet--"Reeling in the Years" was my SD introduction.

Really loved "Deacon Blue," "Babylon Sisters."

This is what happens when you live long enough, but wanted to express gratitude to the memory of Walter Becker for his contribution to hours of great enjoyment he brought to me.

Aw geez! SD was my super-group whose music I followed avidly as a fan. This included reading music articles columns and the music journalists who had advanced knowledge of the coming albums. As the got more sophisticated so did my taste in music listening and stereo reproduction equipment. Then their album Aja cane out and we're all blown away.

Sad to see this loss to the musical world May he RIP.
