Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin Magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of The Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and Gym Class Heroes who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.

Signed to Atlantic Records by AhmetErtegan in the 1970s, the pair has sold more albums than any other duo in music history. Their 1973 debut album, Abandoned Luncheonette, produced by ArifMardin, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone,” which also went to No. 1 on the R&B charts when it was covered by Taveras. The duo recorded one more album with Atlantic, War Babies, (produced by Todd Rundgren) before they were dropped and promptly signed to RCA. Their tenure at RCA would catapult the duo to international superstardom.

From the mid-70s to the mid-80s, the duo would score six No. 1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also No. 1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also No. 1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums. The era would also produce an additional five Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.”
