It\’s a typical late-\’60s student shindig — most of the audience is tripping on acid — but it\’s hardly an ordinary band. Behind the drums is Chevy Chase, familiar around campus as a gifted musician and good-natured goofball who\’s been known to drop his pants after losing late-night games of \’\’dare\’\’ poker. Just in front of him is a long-haired muso named Walter Becker, one of the school\’s most accomplished guitarists. And the shy singer behind the electric piano? That\’s Don Fagen, decked out in a leather jacket with feathers attached to it (hence the band\’s name).

  1. Curiously, finished digitalising the Dan vinyl this afternoon. Seven albums of pure joy & so much better without nearly 4 decades of accumulated scratches.
    There’s Canned Heat to do next…….

  2. “Chase will find fame as one of the greatest comedians of his generation. ” Perhaps the first time that anything associated with Chase has made me laugh.

  3. Far be it from me to cast doubt, but Chevy Chase was a full time member of the Chamaeleon Church during the late 1960s. That limited the opportunities to play with Steely Dan members although it doesn’t make it impossible.
