The world of music lost a legend with the death of Walter Becker this weekend.
No cause of death has yet to be provided, but the death is unexpected, as Steely Dan were about to start a fall tour which included a stop at Casino Rama on October 19th.
At this time, it’s unknown if those shows will happen.
On social media, the tributes and kind words came from Hollywood actors, to all areas of music, even hip-hop:
Walter Becker made so much great iconic music that I connected to when I was younger and still do now. #respect

During his weekend show at Ford Field in Detroit, Beck also played a tribute to Walter Becker:
Becker passed away at the age of 67.
