Episode 5: John Oates on Philly's Beatles backlash, the Hall & Oates origin story and living next to Hunter S. Thompson

Play

John Oates, best known as half of the iconic pop duo Hall & Oates, has played guitar alongside Darryl Hall for decades, co-writing hits like “Sara Smile,” “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” and “Maneater.”  He grew up in Philadelphia, and tells our host Ken Womack that when the Beatles first hit the U.S., his local  radio stations wouldn't play their songs. “Being a teenager in Philadelphia I was right along with them. . . . To me the Beatles didn’t mean that much initially.” Eventually, though, his relationship to the Fab Four's music changed, starting with “Abbey Road.” In this wide-ranging conversation, Oates tells the story of a fateful eviction, the impact producer Arif Mardin had on Hall & Oates, his recent solo work, what kind of neighbor Hunter S. Thompson was, and which Beatles song he'd want with him on a desert island.

Season Two kicks off with an interview and performance by special guest John Oates. John is best known for his legendary career with Daryl Hall and John Oates, and the variety of solo records he’s made since then, which combine to create one of the most successful music careers of our time. Oates’ brand new album “Live in Nashville” is a road trip through his earliest influences in blues and roots music that he’s tapped into since moving to Music City and forming The Good Road Band.  

In the interview John describes the influence that Philadelphia music and radio had on him growing up, and how that led to him and Daryl first plugging in together. John also explains how he left music behind and moved to Colorado to start a new chapter, and what led him to Nashville to form a new band and breathe new life into some of America’s classics. 

At the end of the episode, you’ll hear John play “Creole Bell/Spike Driver Blues Medley” by Mississippi John Hurt, “Had I Known You Better Then” by Daryl Hall and John Oates, and “Please Send Me Someone to Love” by Percy Mayfield. You can see video of this performances on the show page.

Tom The Suit Forst chats with Tom Burger, a blues guitarist who plays in a "Blues Revival" band titled the Creature Collective, on Chasing the Blues 2/ episode 26. Burger calls the music a unique mix of blues, rock, roots, jam and psychedelic. As such, we would say he and his group are on the forefront of young musicians taking the blues in new directions. Burger also discusses his work with Wolfson Entertainment which manages John Oates, and Hall and Oates. Of course, we met Tom Burger through having John Oates on Chasing the Blues a few weeks ago. That interview is available as a podcast and on video on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/RnHG0lzinSw

Well we made it to our 100th episode! Singer, songwriter and member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, John Oates joins me on the show this week. John is widely known for his work with Hall & Oates, topping the charts and selling over 40 million records - that ain’t too shabby. John’s been in Nashville now for quite a few years and has established himself on the local scene here, playing with the cream of the crop of studio players, and exploring some of his blues, country and soul roots with them, dubbing them the Good Road Band. His brand new album “Live In Nashville” features his soulful voice and the killer playing of his live band. John and I talked about the recent records he’s worked on with them, and delved into his early history in the Philly and New York soul scene, which goes back to his recording debut in 1966, and through some of his early Hall and Oates recording experiences with Arif Mardin and Todd Rundgren, jamming with Doc Watson, and how he ended up with Mississippi John Hurt’s guitar. Enjoy my conversation with John Oates!

I’m encouraging listeners to call in this season, and at this point I’m hoping to hear from people about their experiences, good and bad, with starting to play or experience live music again. Join in and leave a message at 615-375-6318 anytime! If you want to skip straight to the interview, it starts about 12 minutes in. Our new website is now up at www.makersandshakerspodcast.com
