the white kids at Jacox Junior High in Norfolk were either listening to Nazareth, Aerosmith, Foghat or Frampton.

I was wearing out the grooves on my copy of “The Royal Scam,” and this track especially:


Sometimes I wonder if I should have listened to more ‘fun’ music, and then I remember: This is fun music.


  1. Dude, you would so love my band.
    We do a “Green Earrings/Bodhisattva” medley. Coolbeaners
    Great tune, great album.

  4. “The Royal Scam.” Credited as Steely Dan’s most cynical and guitar-heavy album. In my mind, the finest work in their catalog, standing on equal footing with Supertramp’s “Crime of The Century” or Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” This is really the highest praise which I can offer to an album.
