City of Brotherly Love Celebrates their Love of R&B Brothers Hall and Oates

I was in Philadephia this week on business and heard on the news that Philly Mayor John Street declared March 18th “Daryl Hall and John Oates Day.” The duo will be celebrating the honor with a show at the Tower Theater tonight. They were quoted on WXPN as saying the only thing that would have topped this honor would be a lifetime supply of Philly Cheesesteaks. In this article in the Philly Inquirer, we find out that Hall and Oates liken themselves to an R&B Grateful Dead due to their diehard fans attendance to their shows and the fact that they change up their setlists every night. In the article we find a typically silent Oates outspoken in his resentment of accusations of his playing Andrew Ridgley to Hall’s George Michael. Evidently Oates has thrown down the gauntlet for Conan O’Brien and will kick his ass if he ever sees him. What kind of brotherly love is that, now?
