LISTEN: Andre Gardner Interviews Walter Becker Download

00:04 Download September 3rd, 2017

I first met Walter backstage after a live radio concert we did with Steely Dan in NYC in 1995, but this interview from 2006 was the first time I had the chance to chat with him at length.

I was quite nervous at the thought, seeing as I read how, with his quick acerbic wit, he’d verbally dismantle someone who asked him the same old tired interview questions.  So, with that in mind, I decided to just be silly and ask off the wall stuff, and I think that was a better strategy.  The references we made to “the day of the devil” in the interview was the fact that it was recorded on 06-06-06.  It was a great honor to have the chance to speak with him.
