Queens, NY names street for Steely Dan’s Walter Becker
Steely Dan guitarist and vocalist Walter Becker died last year after a longtime battle with esophageal cancer. In the wake of his passing, the New York City Council announced that it would rename the street of Becker’s childhood home in honor of the Forest Hills, Queens native. After having the plan approved over the summer, “Walter Becker Way” is finally open. Let's listen to some Steely Dan on these channels!
