Fagen, McDonald and Scaggs at Starlight: The Monsters of Yacht review
A half-hour in on Saturday at Starlight, the Monsters of Yacht — Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs, plus nine touring musicians — launched into “Green Flower Street,” the second track off Fagen’s 1982 solo album, The Nightfly. It was the first Fagen-penned tune of the night, and for the Fagen/Steely Dan nerds in the house, hearing that groovy keyboard intro was like celebrating your birthday on Christmas morning. (In theory, you would get double presents.)
I experienced actual goosebumps. Then a great storm swept down and threatened to ruin everything.
