Consisting of core members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, Steely Dan rose to popularity in mid-70s with their unique blend of jazz, rock, R&B, funk and pop. Named after a stimulating device of the adult nature, their songs are full of as much wit and underlying themes as their name. Unconventional harmonies and complex song structures characterize the group’s style, despite never having a more defined group of musicians. With a great focus on perfection, a revolving cast of rock and pop studio musicians has come and gone from various albums and tours.
Steely Dan have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
