Donald Fagen: "All of my past work is garbage to me"

Donald Fagen: "All of my past work is garbage to me"

Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen combs over his new solo album, his legendary band and his future in the new issue of Uncut, dated December 2012, and out on Tuesday (October 23).

Fagen also discusses the perils of ageing, as well as why he believes women prefer his solo work to Steely Dan, in the interview.

Asked whether he considers his best work to be ahead of him, the keyboardist and singer says: “I do know I’m no longer interested in my past work. I’ll never listen to this album again.

“All of my past work, it’s garbage to me, see.”

The December 2012 issue of Uncut is out on Tuesday (October 23).
