Don Williams, Walter Becker

I’ve been remiss, but a couple of my favourite bloggers have noted the recent passing of some great musicians.

Execupundit’s Michael Wade noted Friday’s news of Don Williams’ death with a link to one of my favourite Williams (and country) songs, Good Ole Boys Like Me.

I saw Don Williams in concert years ago at, I think, the Hammersmith Odeon (whatever they call it now). My memory is of an incredible sense of stillness.

Kurt at Cultural Offering marked the passing of the great Walter Becker, effectively one half of Steely Dan.

An incredible band; sophisticated, cool, erudite.

Both Becker and Williams were great musicians.
