A question for Steely Dan...

How exactly does one stow away time? I'm not sure I get "reelin' in the years" either.
Excellent question, M.A.! Becker and Fagen were always a tad too cerebral for the rockmocker (other than naming their band after a strap-on dildo--that I understand.) I can only posit that the song has something to do with fishing. As for time-stowing devices, see Jim Croce. (not to worry, both links above are SFW)

Got a question for "the Dan" or another classic rocker? 
Send it to the rockmocker. We'll pass it along.

Reelin' In the Years, live from '78
(BTW, that's "Skunk" Baxter on guitar, ex-Steely Dan, ex-Doobie Brother, current member of Congressional Advisory Board on missle defense. Huh?)

  1. Additional question for Steely Dan:

    If my summer is everlasting, why would I see it fading fast?

    And comment: I don't think Jim Croce can actually stow time, but he has some ideas of what he would do if he could.
