Becker and/or Fagen addressed Palmer's time in the band during one postmortem interview. If I remember correctly, their contention was that they had no intention whatsoever of touring, and only did so at the insistence of ABC Records. To satisfy the record company, they hired Palmer in a fit of pique due to his resemblance to Roger Daltrey. Given the rather dark sense of humor that Becker and Fagen are known to display, I would question whether this is a true story or yet another put-on.
