Before Steely Dan was Steely Dan, they were called The Leather Canary and Chevy Chase was their drummer. Fortunately something happened to change that. They also were sampled from time to time (albeit sparingly). Here’s their song “Peg” followed up by “Eye Know” by De La Soul, where Peg is sampled. “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding is also sampled in “Eye Know” (the whistling). De La is definitely up there among the top samplers of all time–just check out 3 Feet High and Rising to see what I’m talking about.
