In July it was announced that late Steely Dan co-founder Walter Becker will have a street named after him in New York City later this year

Becker grew up in Queens and a street sign indicating Walter Becker Way will be unveiled at a ceremony at 112th Street and 72nd Drive in the Forest Hills neighbourhood on October 28.

The event, presented by New York's Classic Rock Q104.3, will be attended by a number of special guests, while Becker’s friends and colleagues will share memories of the musician. 

There are also plans for a day of festivities around the unveiling, which have been organised by Becker’s fans.

Becker died in September 2017 at the age of 67.
