I make it no big secret that I am a huge Daryl Hall & John Oates fan. Growing up in the southern NJ area, I was exposed to a lot of differing styles of music, especially "The Sound Of Philadelphia", as made famous by its principal songwriters Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. Out of that era came a couple of musicians who were mired into that sound and ultimately came up with their own blend of rock & soul. Hall & Oates were the soundtrack of my life, especially during my formative teenage years.
Fast forward to today and FINALLY, Daryl Hall & John Oates have been nominated for the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Along with other deserving artists, they've got some stiff competition and by December we should know who exactly will be going into this prestigious Hall Of Fame. Stay tuned!
