Steely Dan co-founder Walter Becker died on Sunday (Sept. 3) and when the news broke, the music world started sharing tributes.
Bandmate Donald Fagen shared a heartfelt message via his official Facebook page.
“Walter Becker was my friend, my writing partner and my bandmate since we met as students at Bard College in 1967,” Fagen wrote. “He was smart as a whip, an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter. He was cynical about human nature, including his own, and hysterically funny. I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band.”
Other artists, including Slash, Questlove and Ryan Adams, also shared their feelings about Becker and his music.
