Remembering Walter Becker’s Final Connecticut Concert With Steely Dan
As the Rock world continues to mourn the death of Steely Dan co-founder Walter Becker, I stumbled across this YouTube video of Becker performing with Steely Dan for the last time in Connecticut. The band performed at the Greenwich Town Party at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park on May 27.
According to setlist.fm, this was the last time Becker would appear with Steely Dan. He did not perform at the band's appearances at the Classic East and Classic West festivals in New York and Los Angeles. At the time, Becker's partner, Donald Fagen, had said that Becker was "recovering from a procedure" and hoped to be back soon. Becker passed away on Sunday from an undisclosed illness and leaves behind a legacy of timeless music.
