by VVN Music

Walter Becker was never the face of Steely Dan but he was certainly a major driving creative force.

While it isn't known whether Donald Fagen will record any future albums under the band's name, he is continuing on the road with the announcement of eleven new dates in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Becker died on September 3 although the cause of death has not been announced.  Touching tributes were penned by everyone from Fagen to some of the other musicians with which he worked to his daughter.

As part of his tribute, Fagen wrote "I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band."
