Becker's Birthday Salute
Posted:Thursday, 02/21/2013 at 04:02am by Greg Easterling
Yesterday was the birthday of Walter Becker, a founder and longtime member of Steely Dan. Along with Donald Fagen, Becker has co-written Steely Dan's songs over the years, chipping in on bass and guitar where required.

We featured Steely Dan's third record, Pretzel Logic, released in 1974, a Billboard Top Ten album for the band with one of their biggest singles, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number". That's the song that kicked off Side 1; we also heard "Any Major Dude Will Tell You" and a rare Steely Dan cover, Duke Ellington's "East St. Louis Toodle-oo".
