Of course well known now as the theme tune for the annual instalment of reeling in the years broadcast by RTE every summer.

RIP Walter Becker - he and Donald Fagen made some of the best music of all time as Steely Dan.
Smooth! :D

Of the many millions I have never heard of before he was but one of them.
I have heard of the group but having heard the music I ran away.

Loved Steely Dan. Along with Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell they more than made up for all the glam rock and disco shyte that polluted the airwaves in the 1970s.
