It could be that. Or it could have been because he actually had good taste in music.
One or the other.
Most musicians, unless there headbangers, really love Steely Dan. There isn't a jazz player i've ever met, who wouldn't love to solo over the chord changes to alot of there tunes.They took Jazz changes,added elements of pop, funk, rock,and created something totally unique
1. I'm defending someone who is not here to defend himself.
2. It's not at all odd. Steely Dan is HORRIBLE. And I'll be more blunt. If you like them, YOU'RE taste is suspect. It hurts my soul to know that some people think otherwise.
3. I'll express this natural fact as often and as many ways as it pleases me.
I'm sure there is music you like that others hate too.
This is the night,of the expanding man.i take one last drag as i approach the stand. I cried when i wrote this song,sue me if i play too long.This brother is free,I'll be what i want to be.......Huey Lewis could only dream,writing that.And he'd probably be the first to admit it.
