What’s it like to be a guitarist for one of the most iconic, awarded, legendary, and revolutionary American Bands in history? Well, brilliant guitarist Jon Herington knows! Steely Dan is a Multi-Grammy award winning band who has sold more then 30 million albums, was in 2001, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, and who Rolling Stone Magazine has called “the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies.”. Founding Members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker are considered two of the top musical artists of all time, and their unique minds and sounds were some of the most innovative all time in Rock and Roll. Their unique jazz/rock approach and wry/sarcastic lyrics solidified them as one of the most popular bands of the last 40 years, and have helped launch the careers of musicians (Outside Of Herington) like Michael McDonald, The Late Roger Nichols, Denny Dias, and Jeff Baxter. They have won just about every award possible for a rock band in music, while helping define the sound of a generation with Multi-Platinum albums like Aja, Pretzel Logic, Gaucho,Two Against Nature (4 Grammy Awards including Album Of The Year), and Everything Must Go.
