Becker and Fagen discuss their L.A. years and their distance from the Laurel Canyon scene; their winning of four Grammies that should have been Eminem's; their latest album Everything Must Go; getting faster at making records; malls as the new America; 9/11, the coming war in Iraq and the grimness of the future; their ability to combine the "high vulgarian" with the "low highbrow"; becoming more approachable in their old age and their new enjoyment of performing live.
