That's a surprise and a shame. I kind of burned myself out on the Dan over the years, but they created a strain of pop music that's often imitated, but never matched.

I'll bet China Crisis are sad. He produced two of their albums, though not my favorites.

I talked with a guy that saw Steely Dan last year and he said that Becker didn't look to good at that show. From what I've read, Becker had missed a lot of shows this year so unfortunately, I don't think this was much of a surprise to people close to him.

Before this happened, Steely Dan had announced a new tour for the late fall and I got tickets (Fagen has stated that the tour is still on). Is it a bit ghoulish for me to hope that maybe now, they'll play more solo Fagen stuff?

Fagen has promised to keep Steely Dan's music alive as long as he can. He has a solo tour in the works, so I suspect his setlists will include both solo and Dan material.
