Amen! Donald and Walter have been a huge source of musical inspiration for me since I first heard them decades ago.

Rest in Peace, Walter. You will be missed by many......

The AJA episode of the Classic Albums Series was my favourite one , never tire of the album or watching Walter & Donald describe how they crafted that masterpiece .

Steely Dan! Anyone do any Stick covers of their works? They always had monster playing coupled with great tunes and superior songwriting...

I heard Michael Kollwitz do a great version of Josie and learned just this morning that David Tipton did a version of Peg (which I started to do and then ran into that solo...). I do a version of Any Major Dude.
