Donald Fagen, Walter Becker and friends have never really rung my bell. Like a number of bands from before my time, it has been the musical references of others that have gifted some insight. ‘Peg’ had been sampled by De La Soul on 3 Feet High And Rising. More recently, ‘Kid Charlemagne’ was sampled by Kanye on Graduation. But still, their penchant for jazz rock and disdain for rock gods like Led Zeppelin were never going to endear me. But I’ll give Steely Dan this one, the intro on ‘Do It Again’ is something to behold. It featured on 1972 album Can’t Buy A Thrill. R.I.P. Walter Becker.
