Walter Becker, Steely Dan Co-Founder, Dead at 67

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted bassist-guitarist's partnership with Donald Fagen yielded classic LPs like 'Aja,' 'Katy Lied' and 'Pretzel Logic'

"Walter Becker was my friend, my writing partner and my bandmate since we met as students at Bard College in 1967," Donald Fagen wrote in a tribute to Becker. "He was smart as a whip, an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter. He was cynical about human nature, including his own, and hysterically funny."

As Steely Dan, Mr. Becker and Mr. Fagen changed the vocabulary of pop in the 1970s with songs like "Do It Again," "Reelin' in the Years," "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" and "Peg." Mr. Becker and Mr. Fagen were close collaborators on every element of a song: words, music, arrangement. "We think very much the same musically. I can start songs and Walter can finish them," Mr. Fagen said in a 1977 interview.
