I only came to appreciate Steely Dan a few years ago, as an old punk I had dismissed them as far too slick and polished for my tastes. But then their songs gradually crept up on me, those great melodies, after that the genius lyrics sunk in and I was converted.

I saw them live about seven years ago at The Edinburgh Playhouse, great seats, literally front and centre.

Sad news, RIP Walter, thanks for the work you left behind.

Sad news indeed. Loved the Steely Dan sound. So melodic, so smooth, so 'jazzy' with such clever lyrics.Fantastic body of work right up there with all the top bands.
RIP Walter....

And those lyrics contain great stories with real characters using an economy of words that seem to allow them to fit a novel into a song (the only other artist I can think of that does this so well is Tom Waits).

I don't really know what to write. About as important as a band to me than anyone else. RIP Walter from a fan from the beginning. Is there gas in the car, yes there's gas in the car.

Their best known songs are radio gold but a lot of their stuff is a an exercise in 'look how good we are'. Reelin' in the Years is a classic, but with a few other exceptions, their album tracks are bland and unmemorable but maybe OK for relaxing to when you are bored with your playlist.
