Back in the mid-late 70's, there was a local Albuquerque band called Traveler. They had this young kid guitarist who could allegedly play anything. I finally went to see them, and my jaw hung open as I heard Kid Charlemagne played note-for-not e with every nuance. That kid was Tim Pierce, who became (and still is) one of L.A.s top session guitarists today. He and Larry Carlton are probably good buddies now.

Owsley "Bear" Stanley is the subject in this song. He was the first mass producer of LSD during the Haight-Ashbu r y days of San Fran in the middle 60's. It was still legal 'til October,'66 but that didn't halt his production which produced well over 1 million doses lifetime. Incredible story of this man who just recently passed away. Quite a cultural influence I'd say.

I love Steely Dan!

Larry Carlton may be associated with some pretty lame smooth jazz, but the solo at the end of this song over the vamp (FM7,Em7,Dm7 , C M 7 ) is out of this world.

Such great lyrics! One thing though - I always thought it was "Italian" not "champion". :)

Voted one of the best guitar solos of rock music....

Its a great solo, but I like Carlton's work on track #3 of "The Royal Scam," "Don't Take Me Alive," even better!

One of the greatest solos in rock and roll history. Larry Carlton at his best. This is one of The Dan's greatest songs, and damn fun.
