Chasing the Dragon?

Steely Dan, an old favorite, plays in San Hoser tonight. $55 will get you a nose bleed seat. $238 bucks will put you in Donald Fagen's lap. Not. I'd love to be there. It's not the money standing in the way . . . it's the long, long drive in rush hour traffic to San Hoser. Brutal.

How many times have you listened to this song and heard "Right when I chased the dragon . . ."?

Chasing the dragon refers to smoking opium. Now you know. And now the song will take on a whole new meaning.

Well, we all know the origins of how Steely Dan got their name right? Bunch of dirty old geezers...
