About Walter Becker:
Walter Carl Becker is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer. He is best known as the co-founder, guitarist, bassist and co-songwriter of Steely Dan.
My primary influences were the best jazz players from the 50's and 60's and later some of the pop people from the same time period along with the better of the well known blues musicians.
I listen to a mixture of old jazz, contemporary, pop, some world beat stuff and various odds and ends.
I'm a self-taught musician aside from what I've been able to pick up from other players.
Packed up the Dylan and the Man Ray and the Joyce I left a note that said well I guess I got no choice Scuse me girl while I'm kicking it to the curb Leaving with all I need but less than I deserve
