Donald Fagen's 2015 tour diary

And as Steely Dan embark on the 2015 Rockabye Gollie Angel tour Rolling Stone publish the first part of Donald Fagen's tour diary. Here's a link to the first of what the magazine promises is "several installations."

Choice quote:
I'm flying to the West Coast to do a shortish tour, about two weeks. The gigs were booked after we were invited to play at the Coachella festival as a token old-guy band along with AC/DC, whoever they are (I stopped following most mainstream radio rock soon after we put out our first Steely Dan record in '72). Really, I've  heard the name for years, but not sure what they sound like.
UPDATE April 10:

Here's two more parts:

Part 2

Part 3
