One of the most successful duo’s in pop music met at a battle of the bands in the hometown of Philadelphia. Darryl Hall and John Oates were each fronting different bands at the time. They only met when shots rang out in the venue and they each wound up hiding in the same freight elevator.
It didn’t take long for them to realize they both were fans of soul and r&b music and were attending the same University. Their friendship would eventually lead to becoming roommates. On the mailbox at one apartment it was typed “Hall and Oates” and that became their acts name for a long list of hits from the mid 70’s to late 80’s!
Including this top 5 hit from 1980
