I want more! 9 novembre 2013
Par Stanley Hoffman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a huge, obsessive Steely Dan fan, I was so excited to find out Donald Fagan had put out a book of his thoughts in regard to culture. He's neurotic, intellectual, witty and very opinionated. The essays on his musical taste, and influences were a bit over my head because I have no references in regards to jazz. However, I adored his journal from his last tour with the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue. It was so insightful and interesting to hear about his disgust and irritation being on the road, going from gross hotel to grosser hotel, swimming in dirty pools with screaming children, eating bad food, his bouts with insomnia, and his misanthropic attitude towards human beings. His nostalgia for the good old days was moving. If you're looking for a book about Steely Dan's music than this isn't for you. If you're curious about what goes on in a musical genius's mind, than purchase it.

Half of a great book 8 novembre 2013
Par S. D. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I bought both the audio book and the hardcover book. I listened to the entire audio book, but have not yet started reading the hardcover, which I expect will be the same content. I want to let it settle a bit before re-exploring the story.

I loved the first half of the book. It describes the musical and other cultural influences on Donald's life. It starts with a detailed accounting of the story of the Boswell Sisters, who predated the similar sound of the Andrews Sisters in the 1930s. The book slowly traverses through his life until it reaches what would have been his senior year at Bard College, when he and Walter were arrested on trumped up drug charges by G. Gordon Liddy before he became known as a felon for Nixon.

At this point the story abruptly skips over decades to morph into the tour diary of the Dukes of September with Michael MacDonald and Boz Scaggs. At first it was rather interesting, but it quickly bogged down. He kind of obsesses about different things and seems somewhat neurotic in his fear of dealing with fans or swimming in the hotel pool.

While I appreciate the baring of the soul, it seemed kind of sad. I would have much preferred a continuation of the story in the same vein (somewhat detached) and hear about the forming of Steely Dan, his experiences in writing and working with Walter Becker, etc. It feels very much like Donald got about half-way through his book before losing motivation and then, to finish it up, they just slapped in the tour diary to fill out the minimum required pages.

I love all the music of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. I'd love to hear more of their story. Hopefully Walter will continue where Donald left off or maybe Donald will write another book with the second half of the story.

Interesting but brief glimpse at the cofounder of Steely Dan 22 novembre 2013
Par Leslie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Fagan begins with a little background on his early years growing up in a New Jersey suburb in the 1960s and talks about the jazz singers and songwriters that were an influence on him. He touches on his high school and college years and briefly mentions meeting Walter Becker, his future partner in Steely Dan, while attending Bard College. In the last part of the book he chronicles his recent cross-country tour with Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald as the Dukes of September, an R&B band.

As a long-time Steely Dan fan I enjoyed learning more about one of my favorite singer/songwriters. But in a way, the book was too short. Perhaps that was deliberate because it only touched on a lot areas of his life and in most instances didn’t go into a lot of detail. While mostly interesting, the material is a little scattered and rambles at times.

I particularly enjoyed the essays about his love of science fiction. (Yes, I did mention he got a bit random at times.) A loner in high school, he would escape into books, specifically science fiction. Many of the authors and novels he mentioned were refuges of my own youth and I enjoyed and easily related to this.

I already knew Fagan didn’t like to go on tour, but the second half of the book, a diary he wrote while on the road with the Dukes, really brings that home. It’s pretty obvious he loathes touring: The hotels, even the swimming pools at the hotels (hmmm), the food, the room service, the venues, even some of the fans. It annoyed him that so many fans wanted to hear only his old hits. This part of the book did get a bit cranky but was written in a humorous, sarcastic manner which gave me a few laughs. He was told by his people that if he wanted first class hotels and happy fans he needed to tour as Steely Dan, not the Dukes as the Dukes were not a big enough draw. After listening to an hour of this I began to wonder why he toured at all. I never did get an answer.

I listened to the audiobook which was read by the author. I have mixed feelings on an author doing the narration. With fiction, very few can carry it off to my satisfaction, but with non-fiction I’m a little more forgiving. Fagan’s narration was wooden at times but listenable, and with memoirs, the author’s reading gives the story a sense of validity. If you’re leaning towards listening, it might be a good idea to hear a sample of the audio first.

This is a nice introduction to Donald Fagan and as a fan I’d like to read more. The writing was good and I look forward to a more detailed future memoir.

I Hope This is Volume One 15 décembre 2013
Par ForeignFilmFan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The first part of the book contains information about musical influences with some fun stories tossed in. There may be more detailed jazz discussion that some readers want, but that section is worth the price of the book in order not to have missed out on discovering the Boswell Sisters (check them out on You Tube). I don't know why some readers are surprised by or disappointed with the second half. If they've ever read an interview transcript with Donald and Walter, they should be glad they have the opportunity to read actual thoughts shared with the public. For me, the road trip pages were hysterically funny and also worth the price of the book. I'll buy any memoirs Mr. Fagen chooses to write, even if they're complete fiction. Right now, I'm waiting for Mr. Becker's memoir response. Seriously, if you're a fan, this book is great fun!

Interesting book albeit sad 23 janvier 2014
Par Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love Steely Dan and expected a very witty and intelligent read from Donald Fagen. I wasn't disappointed. The focus on how Fagen was influenced by jazz among other sources was tremendously insightful. The second half of the book focused on a diary related to a recent US tour. Sadly, this section made me feel that touring is torturous for him. I feel badly for the experiences that Fagen must deal with, but as a counter, I loved being able to see him and Walter live (still the most impeccably produced concert I've seen--and I loved the alterations to the songs). If Donald never releases another album or book, this is a great finish. But I'd love for that not to be the case.
