RIP Walter Becker aged 67. So glad I saw Steely Dan in Vegas last year.

Re: R.I.P. Thread

yeah, we lost yet another of the greats, seems to happen way too often now that I'm old. I also took them off the bucket list, about 3 years ago in Tuscaloosa AL, just a super show with guest keyboard player Jim Beard helping Donald out ........... RIP Walter

Actor Frank Vincent (8/4/1939 - 9/13/2017) (The Sopranos, Goodfellas, Casino, Raging Bull)

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la … story.html

Did not know this until I read it in the LA Times article ...
Vincent was raised in Jersey City, N.J., where he acted in school plays and learned piano, trumpet and drums. As an adult, he became a session drummer for such singers as Paul Anka, Del Shannon, Trini Lopez and The Belmonts.

Found a picture posted on Twitter of Mr. Vincent and Mr. Pesci from their band days ...

RIP Joseph Pal   https://twitter.com/JBONAMASSA/status/9 … 1922932736

Re: R.I.P. Thread

Thanks for posting this to the forum, Jane.

I offer condolences and quiet prayers of serene peace for Deb & sisters, Len, and all the rest of the family, (extended included).  As he was a veteran and VFW member, I am very glad he received a military funeral also.
I noticed that Joe’s namesake maternal Grandfather and my paternal Grandmother coincidentally shared November 15 as their birthday (she turned 102 yesterday).

After reading Joe’s Tweet, I remember when I offered a trivia question concerning the late Mr. Pal:
