Steely Dan

Donald Fagen - Words and Music - 2012

by Rita Houston
Donald Fagen

It's hard to imagine pop music history without songs like "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" and "Reelin' In The Years," and of course, Steely Dan couldn't exist without singer and keyboardist Donald Fagen. Outside the band, his solo records have been few and far between but worth the wait, and this year he released a new one called Sunken Condos. Hear about the new album's songs and characters, and the influence of Levon Helm, Isaac Hayes and more, in my recent conversation with Donald.
