Hall and Oates: 38 Years Later

Thirty eight years have passed since Daryl Hall and John Oates recorded their first album in 1972 named Whole Oats. They have been recording as Hall and Oates ever since. Hall is 63 today and looks that old while Oates doesn’t look anywhere close to being his 61 years old.

The following video from American Idol final in May shows them singing You Make My Dreams Come True. Hall is showing his age more than Oates. There are no closeups on Oates but from a distance he looks more than 41 than 61.

Halls and Oates are still recording as they enter their fifth decade in the music business having started in the 70’s and now are in the 10’s.

Their songs may not be at the top of the charts but they are still touring and recording for Sony BMG record company.

  1. They put out two recent CD’s worth checking out. “Our Kind of Soul” has them paying homage to the soul songs that they grew up on and a Christmas CD that came out about three years ago. Both are worth checking out.
