Donald Fagen net worth: Donald Fagen is an American musician and songwriter who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Born in Passaic, New Jersey, Donald Fagen began listening to jazz while he was in elementary school, and subsequently learned how to play the piano and the baritone horn. He went on to attend Bard College, where he majored in English Literature, but he continued to play music throughout college, and began to work with various bands, eventually being hired by ABC/Dunhill Records, as a songwriter, along with his college classmate, Walter Becker. The pair would go on to form the core of the band, Steely Dan. After releasing three albums, Steely Dan disbanded, but was resurrected with just Donald Fagen and Walter Becker in the mid-90s. The released two more studio albums, the first of which won multiple Grammys, in the early 2000s. Donald Fagen has also pursued a successful solo career, and has released four solo records to date.
Donald Jay Fagen (born January 10, 1948) is an American musician and songwriter, best known as the co-founder (along with partner Walter Becker) and lead singer of the rock band Steely Dan.
Fagen is known for his use of jazz harmonies, elaborate arrangements and attention to detail. Following the initial breakup of Steely Dan in 1981, he launched a long-running, if sporadic, solo career in 1982, spawning four albums to date. The fourth album, Sunken Condos, was released on October 16, 2012. In 1993, Fagen and Becker reunited and have since toured and released albums as Steely Dan.
Fagen was born in Passaic, New Jersey, on January 10, 1948 to Joseph "Jerry" Fagen, an accountant and his wife Elinor. From the age of 12 to 17, Elinor sang in a hotel band in upstate New York's Catskill Mountains until bouts of stage fright (a condition her son would later be afflicted with) forced her to discontinue performing live. Fagen would later recall: "I can't ever remember when there was silence around the house. She was either playing records or singing."
Around 1958, the Fagen family moved from Passaic first to the suburb of Fair Lawn, and then quickly moved and settled into a ranch-style house in the Kendall park section of South Brunswick, New Jersey. The transition greatly upset Donald: he detested living in the suburbs. He would later recall to an interviewer that it "was like a prison. I think I lost faith in [my parents'] judgment... It was probably the first time I realised I had my own view of life." His life in Kendall Park would later inspire tracks on his album The Nightfly.
In the late 1950s, Fagen became interested in rock and R&B music; his first record purchase being Chuck Berry's "Reelin' and Rockin'". Around age 11, after receiving musical recommendations from a cousin and attending the Newport Jazz Festival, he quickly became a self-declared "jazz snob. I lost interest in rock n' roll and started developing an anti-social personality." Fagen would
