Fagen, a pianist and vocalist who along with Walter Becker comprise the seminal pop group Steely Dan, released his solo debut in 1982 with The Nightfly, which featured the hit single I.G.Y. (What A Beautiful World). Eleven years later, he released Kamakiriad, which had the single called "Tomorrow's Girls."

After disbanding in the early 1980s, Fagen and Becker reunited as Steely Dan to release the albums Two Against Nature in 2000 and Everything Must Go in 2003.

Fagen celebrates his 57th birthday on January 10th.
