    His musical talent will certainly live on at my house.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Becker.

    There's another thread gaining steam.

    Huge talent gone.

    I'm devastated to hear of Walter's passing at only 67. ... A man brilliant on both guitar and bass and played them as two separate instruments. ... Not to mention a brilliant wordsmith. ... I read how he and Donald Fagan would call each other, late at night, and spend hours trying different combinations of phrases to form ideas just for the next line.
