Hey folks!

I understand that neither Becker or Fagen played on the studio version of  "Negative Girl", but has anyone heard it live? Does anyone else share an affinity for that song like I do?

Just thought I'd ask!

Hey guys and gals!

What's goin' on?

I'm new to livejournal and this group. I don't have very many friends on here so I hope to make a few here soon.

Was anyone else at the gig in Lucca?

I couldn't get tickets for the one in London... so I flew out.

Chicago 06-27-07 [01 Jul 2007|02:01am]

Steely Dan roxxored as usual! I was pleased!

The drummer, Keith Carlock, was a complete f***ing maniac! I loved him! For some reason when I listen to "Aja" through my headphones, I don't notice how incredibly f***ing heavy the drums are. [Not that I expect he was the original drummer]

I am totally, completely, utterly envious of the "backing vocals" singers Cindy Mizelle and Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery. If I could have any job in the entire universe, I'd have theirs! Totally! The Dan are touring all over the US followed by Europe, Japan, and Australia / New Zealand. I could hardly have any complaints if I could live one of their lives!

After all, literally every song was carried by them, and it's almost not fair to call them "backing" vocalists. I love Donald Fagen's voice, but during this concert his vocals sometimes seemed like an afterthought. Then again, I can't sing like freakin' Jennifer Hudson like they do, so I don't think I would qualify for that job anytime soon.

That's all I have to say about that!

Bookmarks? [20 Nov 2006|12:46pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Somehow, my son deleted all my bookmarks from Firefox. I've used my history and my few brain cells to reconstruct some of what was in there.

While brainstorming today, it hit me that I should be working instead. *gasp!*

So, I ask you to waste your company's money instead. ;)

What sites do you consider vital reading/viewing for SD news? Of course I already have the official site bookmarked.

At the Steely Dan show [03 Sep 2006|02:41am]

What an amazing show. My whole family went to the show at the DTE 9/2 and weren't disappointed. Half of us were split on which show was better, this or the 2003 show here. But anyways, heres the set list.
Read more...Collapse )

Overall, a very solid concert. Definately was surprised by Chain Lightning. All the musicians were on too, except the guitarist. Kinda junked up My Old School. Only disappointment of the evening was the encore; it was the exact same two songs they played last time, and FM is NOT encore material.

I got me a Steely Dan T-Shirt though. I didn't realize they were selling hoodies too, cause now I want one. If anyone knows a place I can get my hands on some tour merchandise, let me know.

I'm taking my daughter to her first rock concert tonight - her first just happens to my favorite band and one her father loves a lot too... which is of course Steely Dan!

I'm so excited! Last time I saw them, I won front row center stage tickets and it was awesome. But having the chance to take my kid to see them before they retire is even better. I remember my first concert to this day - The Police on the Synchronicity tour.

She is eight and loves to sing the line, "Go back Jack, do it again" - in fact, I can hear her signing it in the tub rightnow. She just started playing drums this year so we are happy Keith Carlock is playing on this tour because he should be a treat to watch.

The truth about Steely Dan! Which band have you been listening to all these years?

This is by far the best thing I have ever beared witness to.

7-25-06 MountianView, CA X-posted from Pantera bulletin board [26 Jul 2006|01:31am]

just got back from the big show.
I arrived just in time to miss Michael McDonald's set. The last 30 seconds of Takin' it to the Streets was enough for me.

Steely Dan were damn good. I was impressed with Donald Fagan's vocals and melodica playing and not his keytar playing.
Walter Becker just played endless wanky guitar solos.
The band was tight. To play the title track to Aja is pretty ambitious what with the most dense chords of any rock song and several minutes of drum solos. They pulled it off surprisingly well.

here's the set list...

- instrumental Intro
- Bodhisattva
- Time Out of Mind
- Aja
- I Got The News
- Hey 19
- Deacon Blues
- Josie
- Green Earrings
- Black Friday
- Dirty Work - featuring surprise guest appearance by Bonnie Raitt
- Show Biz Kids - vocals by Michael McDonald
- Do It Again
- Peg
- Don't Take Me Alive
- Kid Charlemagne
- FM
- My Old School

no complaints other than the giant pile of garlic fries the girl next to me was holding the whole time.

Steely Dan concert! - x-posted from my journal [09 Jul 2006|02:05am]

[ mood | Yay! ]

Tonight I went to the Steely Dan / Michael McDonald concert with ronnie1969.

Michael McDonald was cool too, and I happen to know a lot more Michael McDonald songs than I thought I did.

Donald Fagen looked pimped out in his big red suit jacket with shoulderpads.

We sat out on the lawn, soaking up a few rays, a few raindrops, lots of wind, several mosquito bites, and lots of cigarette/"Doobie" smoke.

I got a glow stick thingy, a t-shirt, and had a good time.

I work for HomeGoods and came across the best surprise in the wall decor section and thought y'all would enjoy. I know it certainly made my day:

I love going to concerts but buying tickets will always be the death of me. It's like a bloody brawl to get your mitts on a good pair. Fortunately I got my tickets for Jones Beach and PNC in Jersey, so I'm all set... for now. Trying to get Vegas tickets for later and next week is Boston and GOD WHEN WILL IT ALL END?!?!?!

At least it'll all be worth it.

"The Boston Rag" [23 Apr 2006|02:04pm]

Anybody have any credible interpretations for the lyrics of this particular song?

Me, I got nothing.

Just curious,

I'm going to road trip around the country this summer to see Steely Dan as much as I can and was wondering if anyone could recommend some venues I should definately see them in. I'll definately be at the NY area ones (The Bank and The Beach) but as far as outside the tri-state area I was wondering where else I should stop!
