Walter Becker, the late Steely Dan co-founder, will have a New York City street named in his honor.
City Council Member Karen Koslowitz of the 29th District (in the borough of Queens) introduced a bill, which was approved by a full council vote Thursday.
Becker grew up at 112-20 72nd Drive, and the sign "Walter Becker Way" will join the street signs at 112th and 72nd Drive when it is unveiled on October 28th.
The Becker family has opted to give the band's fan base complete control over the planning and organization of the day's festivities, with more details to follow.
Becker died from esophageal cancer September 3rd. He was 67.
In a related note, efforts continue to have a street in Ann Arbor, Michigan named after Bob Seger.
