On this episode of Plus One Eric talks with guitarist, singer, and songwriter John Oates of the legendary pop duo Daryl Hall & John Oates. Hardly requiring an introduction, Daryl Hall & John Oates created music that has defied generational confinement, and since their formation in 1970 they’ve solidified themselves as one of the greatest pop acts of all time, selling an estimated 40 million records including six No. 1 hits.

This jam-packed hour guides the listener through the dynamic musical life of John Oates, offering an intimate look into his innovative artistic mind. John walks Eric through the inception of Hall & Oates, their studio approach, and the full-circle journey of this extraordinary duo.

In 2021, Oates hopes to hit the road on a summer Hall & Oates tour, and fit in as many side gigs as he can. As he mentions in the podcast, “I’d play live whenever I could.” Oates’ love of music is evident in just about every second of the podcast, and his passion for his art is infectious.
