Eminent Hipsters

Eminent Hipsters

Donald Fagen

A witty, candid, sharply written memoir through the cofounder of Steely Dan

In his exciting debut as an writer, Donald Fagen—musician, songwriter, and cofounder of Steely Dan—reveals the cultural figures and currents that formed his inventive sensibility, in addition to delivering a glance at his university days and a hilarious account of lifestyles at the street. Fagen offers the “eminent hipsters” who spoke to him as he was once turning out to be up in a bland New Jersey suburb within the early Sixties; his colourful, mind-expanding years at Bard university, the place he first met his musical associate Walter Becker; and the agonies and ecstasies of a up to date cross-country journey with Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs. Acclaimed for his literate lyrics and complicated preparations as a musician, Fagen right here proves himself a worldly author together with his personal unique voice.
