Almost a week since the tickets for the so far only announced date of Steely Dan's 2011 tour, and no additional dates/details have been released. The grapevine says a July - November tour named Shuffle Diplomacy Twenty Eleven, but it is still unconnfirmed.
While waiting for touring news we found that Twitter is a place that Steely Dan/Donald Fagen/Walter Becker can turn to for some positive reinforcement at 140 characters or less.
Yes, you read that right. Twitter is as far as music goes not only a forum for the latest flash in the pan pop star. You can also find people interested in music that has stood the test of time.
Here are a few of the best Steely Dan mentions over the last couple of days:
Don't go looking for any Steely Dan/Donald Fagen/Walter Becker accounts on Twitter. We think it is safe to say that what we wrote a year ago still hold true: Apart from the official sites steelydan.com, donaldfagen.com and walterbecker.com there's just the Steely Dan and Walter Becker MySpace pages. Or "billboard" as Walter wrote.
