Steely Dan is the American Rock/Jazz band that dates back to the year '72. The founding members are Walter Becker and Donald "Don" Fagen. Let us examine the curious, yet familiar numerology of these names.
- Steely Dan = 1+2+5+5+3+7+4+1+5 = 33
- Walter Becker = 5+1+3+2+5+9+2+5+3+2+5+9 = 51
- Donald Fagen = 4+6+5+1+3+4+6+1+7+5+5 = 47
- Don = 4+15+4 = 33
- Fagen = 6+1+7+5+14 = 33
With regards to musicians and bands having "33" names, it is nothing new or uncommon. After all, the word 'rockstar' sums to "33".
- Rockstar = 9+6+3+2+1+2+1+9 = 33
Steely Dan performed live for two years, from '72 to '74. Emphasis on '74, a very important number in Gematria and in this nation's history. From '74 to '81 they solely recorded in the studio, a span of seven years. Twelve years later, in '93, the number of Thelema, Steely Dan would return to performing. It almost reminds me of Flight 93 with 33 passengers. It should also be noted that 12 represents complete.
With this information in mind, the question begs, who are Steely Dan, and who is really behind their music? I'd tell my dad about this since he is a big Steely Dan fan, but he has already made clear he doesn't care about the numbers because he is one of the many people who also believes that there is nothing he can do about this crazy world... except grin and bare it.
What kind of person are you?
