While 2017 brought some amazing concerts to our area, it also delivered some powerful losses to the rock community, Steely Dan’s Walter Becker passing had a profound effect on our staff. Especially Andre Gardner and Debbi Calton. Andre Gardner shares an interview he did with Walter & Debbi Calton gives us an insider’s view into Steely Dan via her friendship with one of the band’s studio musicians.
Andre Gardner was intimidated to interview Walter Becker. Becker was known for his intelligence and ascerbic wit.
Debbi Calton talks about the special place Steely Dan has in heart and the vivid memories she has associated with their songs & concert performances. She also gives us an inside view into what the band members were like from a friend of hers who did some studio work with the band.
