Music: Backstage – Onstage – On The Record – John Oates, Part 1
As half of Hall & Oates he helped craft and create some of the most memorable music of this generation. As a solo artist, he has dug deep into the rich American musical soil, celebrating the roots of blues, soul, country, Americana and other organic styles. With the new three-CD set ‘Good Road to Follow,’ John Oates has woven together three separate musical journeys that take the listener far and wide across the American sonic landscape. Each song represents a unique collaboration with artists as diverse as Vince Gill and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, and the full collection may be Oate’s boldest musical statement yet. Chris speaks with John about this wonderfully sprawling new album, Hall & Oates’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and more.
