Song of the Day: Steely Dan – “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number”

Happy birthday wishes go out to guitarist Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, who turns 69 years old today. Now here’s a guy who’s had an interesting life. Baxter was a founding member of Steely Dan, then went on to perform with The Doobie Brothers as well as numerous other artists. Eventually, he turned an interest in weapons systems and military hardware into a place as a defense analyst with the George W. Bush administration. This is one of Baxter’s more well-known guitar moments as he performs the solo on this Steely Dan classic.
