Are Steely Dan still making music?
In a tragic turn of events, Steely Dan co-founder and guitarist Walter Becker passed away in 2017 at the age of 67 due to an aggressive form of esophageal cancer. Following his death, his widow Delia Becker shared an emotional statement with Billboard, revealing the circumstances surrounding his passing.
Becker and his partner, Steely Dan lead vocalist and keyboard player Donald Fagen, met during their time at New York's Bard College in 1967. They went on to establish Steely Dan in 1971, creating a unique musical legacy.
After a successful period as a live band, Becker and Fagen decided to retire from performing in 1974, opting to focus on studio work instead. By 1981, they disbanded and the duo pursued solo endeavors.
In 1993, Steely Dan reunited, allowing fans to once again experience their iconic music through a series of tours. They also released two albums of new material during this time - the 2000 Grammy Award-winning 'Two Against Nature' and 'Everything Must Go' in 2003.
After Becker's death, Fagen reluctantly carried on the Steely Dan project as the sole official member. The band is currently back on tour, with Fagen paying homage to his late partner throughout their performances.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Steely Dan fans there are no confirmed plans for new music from the band. Their most recent album, released in 2021, 'Northeast Corridor: Steely Dan Live!'. This begs the question among fans: Will there ever be new music without the presence of Becker, given their irreplaceable artistic partnership?
Opinions among fans are divided, with some believing that Steely Dan's unique dynamic cannot be replicated without Becker. However, a glimmer of hope remains as many fans eagerly await the possibility of unreleased tracks surfacing in the future.
While the band's immediate focus is on touring, the anticipation for unheard music lingers and Steely Dan's musical legacy continues to make an impact.
When did Steely Dan last tour the UK?
Steely Dan last visited the UK in February 2019, when they embarked on a tour alongside the legendary English musician, songwriter, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Steve Winwood.
The tour saw them deliver outstanding performances at some of the UK's biggest arenas including AO Arena Manchester, Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, OVO Arena Wembley, 3Arena Dublin, and SSE Hydro in Glasgow.
Reflecting on the band's legacy, Fagen, the driving force behind Steely Dan, expressed his commitment to preserving the musical realm they crafted together. As highlighted in an article by udiscovermusic.com, Fagen proclaimed, "I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band."
Who is Steely Dan touring with in 2024?
Since September 2023, the band has been supporting the legendary 'Hotel California' rockers, Eagles, as part of their highly anticipated 'Long Goodbye' farewell tour in the United States.
