"Well, that didn't take long"

...for Becker's estate lawyers to seize an opportunity they felt his passing provided, or for Fagen to say "Now hold on just a cotton-picking minute!"?

Without knowing all the details, it looks like they had a valid contract and now the estate (wife/lawyer?) has realized that a payout won't entitle them to any future royalties. Still a letter 3 or 4 days later, probably before the poor guy was even in the ground certainly means they were just waiting for him to go. Such a low class move.

Very unfortunate. These people don't even have anything to do with the band itself except for the fact that she is Walter's wife and their lawyers. Too bad Donald has to go through this.

Yeah it seems like Becker's wife and lawyers are way out of line here claiming the Buy/Sell agreement is no longer valid. And to issue the letter 4 days after his death? Fuck them. On the other hand, how does one determine what the Becker estate's shares of Steely Dan are worth?
