Steely Dan: 10 Essential Songs
When my father was 18 he was hitchhiking across America. In the desert just outside of LA a young man stopped and picked up my father and took him in town to his house. The man told my father his name was Walter Becker and was in a band, but never told my father the name of the band.
My father told Walter his name was Ricky, even though it was not. Ricky was the name of one of the neighbor kids my father had grown up with. Walter cooked my father dinner and allowed him the use of his shower. They sat around for sometime talking, Walter played the guitar for a bit and then my father felt his time to go had come, as Walters constant flirtation was a bit troublesome to a young straight male.
So Walter gave my father a lift to the freeway but before my father got out he gave him a piece of paper that said "Give walter a call He then told my father the next time he saw a post box to mail it home so when he returned he would have it and could give him a call. My father never did call.

It wasn't till sometime after that my father realized that Walter Becker was the guitarist in Steely Dan and the song was about him. I have asked myself many times if this story is true and my father swears that it's the truth.
After much research i have yet to find anything to confirm or falsify this besides the fact that over the past 20 years not a single detail has changed in the story. I suppose the only person that could confirm this would be Walter Becker himself if he in fact remembers the young boy he picked up in the desert outside of L.

Now he has to figure out if he's gay and who he can talk to about it. Supposedly about a girl Becker and Fagen knew in college, but could also be about them asking Rick Derringer to be a permanent member of the Dan, which he passed on.
