The only book ever to have been published on Steely Dan, Reelin' in the Years tells the strange tale of how Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, two cynical New York jazz fans, wormed their way into a record contract and astonished critics with their debut album, Can't Buy a Thrill. Seven albums later, after Aja had topped charts everywhere, they were among the biggest selling acts in the world.But Steely Dan were different from the rest of rocks megastars. They rarely gave interviews. After some early bad experiences on the road, they refused to tour. They didn't have photographs taken. They were perfectionists. They were enigmatic.

Unfortunately, that trust has eroded because of their reaction to the numerous current product issues. When it was revealed that subcontractors had secretly bought back Motrin off the shelves without notifying the public that something was wrong with it, J&J found itself with a much larger issue than just public dismay. This phantom recall had compelled FDA regulators to call upon its crime unit to investigate whether or not these actions by Johnson & Johnson constitute criminal behavior
