Walter Carl Becker
Profile:
American guitarist, bass player and saxophonist (1950-2017) who was largely associated with Steely Dan. Becker met Donald Fagen while attending Bard College. The duo were part of Jay & The Americans for a while in the early 1970s, then formed the group Steely Dan in 1972. The band broke up in 1981, and Becker moved to Hawaii and began a career as a producer for a variety of artists, spanning from synth-pop groups to folk singers. Walter Becker joined up with Fagen to collaborate on the debut album for Rosie Vela, and then for a longer time to tour as Steely Dan in 1993. During that period the duo worked on each-others solo albums, viz. Donald Fagen - Kamakiriad (1993) and Walter Becker - 11 Tracks Of Whack (1994).
Born: 20th February 1950, in New York, New York, United States.
