Eminent Hipsters

Eminent Hipsters

Donald Fagen

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

In his unique debut as an writer, Donald Fagen—musician, songwriter, and cofounder of Steely Dan—reveals the cultural figures and currents that formed his creative sensibility, in addition to providing a glance at his collage days and a hilarious account of existence at the highway. Fagen provides the “eminent hipsters” who spoke to him as he used to be turning out to be up in a bland New Jersey suburb within the early Nineteen Sixties; his colourful, mind-expanding years at Bard collage, the place he first met his musical companion 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 intricate preparations as a musician, Fagen right here proves himself a worldly author along with his personal designated voice.
