American rock band Steely Dan was formed in the late 1970s by core members Walter Becker (guitars, bass, backing vocals) and Donald Fagen (keyboards, lead vocals). Fagen and Becker played with various session musicians over the years until Becker’s passing in 2017, which left Fagen as the band’s only official member. The band’s debut album, Can’t Buy a Thrill, was released in 1972 to both critical and commercial success, setting the band up to be what Rolling Stone has called “the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies”. After a twelve year hiatus (1981 – 1993), the band reformed and went on to release two albums of new material, the first of which Two Against Nature (2000), earned a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. To date, the band has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, and in March 2001 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
