… on… Walter Becker….

R.I.P. Walter Becker February 20, 1950 – September 3, 2017
We lost another music genius. Musician, songwriter & producer, Walter Becker, one half of the legendary songwriting duo popularly known as Steely Dan. The group took their name form a sex toy named in the William S. Burroughs novel NAKED LUNCH. While most people know of Donald Fagan (the other half of Steely Dan) through his solo success few people are familiar with Walter Becker’s solo work. On this sad day many people will focus on his Steely Dan work but I want to celebrate the man – the individual. I’ve enjoyed his solo work as much as his work with Steely Dan. He only released 2 solo albums. I would like to feature 6 tracks 3 from each album and hope they will inspire you to further explore the rest of his solo work. So without further words.

From His first solo album 11 TRACKS OF WHACK (1994)

Down In The Bottom

Lucky Henry

Junkie Girl

From His second solo album CIRCUS MONEY (2008)
Bob Is Not Your Uncle Anymore

Three Picture Deal

Somebody’s Saturday Night

  1. First three videos “not available” to me, but other three are. Thanks for turning me on to this man’s music and I’m sorry he won’t be writing and singing any more…RIP Walter
