Steely Dan's Donald Fagen Sues Walter Becker's Estate

Steely Dan‘s Donald Fagen is suing the estate of his late bandmate, Walter Becker, in order to retain control of the band. The crux of the suit is a Buy/Sell Agreement Fagen and Becker signed in 1972, not long before the release of their debut album, Can’t Buy a Thrill. The contract stipulated that if a member of Steely Dan quit or died, the band would purchase all of that member’s shares in the group.
