Denny Dias (Steely Dan)

DENNY DIAS - STEELY DAN

Denny Dias was working with his own band out of his basement in Hicksville, Long Island when he placed this ad in The Village Voice: "Looking for keyboardist & bassist. Must have jazz chops! Assholes need not apply." Donald Fagen & Walter Becker responded, joined his band and immediately began playing their own material. Amazed at the talent Becker and Fagen had, Dias fired the rest of the band, and the three of them moved to California, adding drummer Jim Hodder, guitarist Jeff "Skunk" Baxter and vocalist David Palmer before recording for ABC/Dunhill Records as Steely Dan. Dias recorded as a permanent member of the band on their first six albums, right up to "Aja." In 1991 he joined Toto, and currently plays with Spanky McFarlane when not working as a computer programmer in L.A.
