An actually interesting article about Donald Fagen of Steely Dan, and his upcoming album. I have been a sucker for Steely Dan, ever since their first album, though I kind of lost interest after Aja. The combination of prussic-acid strength cynicism and possibly the most perfect song writing and production ever is hard to beat.
...what will he do for an encore? In an e-mail note, Mr. Fagen replied, "just one of those cringe-worthy duet albums: you know, me and gwen stefani, me and tony bennett, me and gladys knight ... also some tricked-up duets with dead people: nat king cole, tiny tim, mae west, etc."
