The American jazz rock band, Steely Dan, will be performing live at Pittsburgh at the Benedum Center in August.
The band was founded by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, who are its core members. Steely Dan gained fame in the late 1970s when they released around seven albums. These albums comprised of blended music from the genres of jazz, funk, R&B, rock and pop. Because of this fame, they were claimed as "the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies" by Rolling Stone.
All the glory of the band is definitely credited to its founders. Both Becker and Fagen are known to be near-obsessive towards perfectionism in the recording studio. For their album Gaucho, the pair hired around forty two studio musicians and eleven engineers. The two never quite enjoyed the idea of rock. With the cryptic lyrics and ironic humor, their eclectic body of work shows some debt to Bob Dylan. They met at Bard College in New York in 1967. Shortly afterwards, they began performing together in bands.
Steely Dan was officially completed as a band in 1972 upon the signing of four other members. It released its debut album Can't Buy a Thrill in the same year. Having sold over forty million albums worldwide, Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. The band received a Grammy Award for "Album of The Year" for the album Two Against Nature.
