I like this show Daryl Hall has where he is restoring/adding on to a 1700's colonial farm home in Connecticut. Really interesting how much is involved. He also has one of his rocker guitar tech doing some grunt work.

is it better than the one where Vanilla Ice buys houses cheap, fixes them, then flips them? Darryl Hall also has a show where he jams with all kinds of musical legends...

They showed his place on an episode of This Old House a year or two ago, it's pretty impressive.

I watch his show "Live From Daryl's House" every now and then, he has some good musical guests

He is a really sharp guy. Restoring the farm house and doing it right

It wasn't until I watched the rock n roll hall of fame thing earlier this year that I realized:

A) Live From Darryl's House was his show. I had no idea what Hall and Oats looked like and I had only seen a minute or two of his show in passing.

B) How many songs of theirs I recognized but had no idea were done by Hall and Oats. The name just always struck me as a folk band for some reason so I never cared to listen to them.

The older I get the more I feel like I appreciate genres of music I had dismissed previously. Those guys can jam and Hall's show is awesome.

Ah, I should have known. He jams way better than a Quaker would.

He also has a thing for German cars. I almost bought a 2002 from his brother-in-law back around 2001 or so. Although I never verified the claim, the guy didn't seem like the kind of outright braggart who'd make something like that up.

I never thought you'd confuse Darryl Hall with Ted Nugent.

Nugent loves deer... he probably has 100 different ways to cook them..

I have worked "live from Darry's house" when he brings it to Atlantic City. We -hate- that set. It is not so much a set as a wall from a real house.

other than that, they were both at the Borgata recently and put on a great show

I think most people like Hall and Oates, they just don't know it. I had a customer give me tickets years ago to see them and drug a friend with me. He spent the whole night saying "I never knew they sang that".

Two talented musicians hamstrung by the fact that a lot of their music was popular and somewhat sappy so they get lumped in with a lot of music that was popular and sucked. Hall and Oates is still a regular feature in my playlist.

Oates is a gearhead sort of guy - he used to road race quite a bit in the 1980s and actually had a factory ride in a GTU Fiero.

What I like about the show is he never has to whine about not having the money to get what he wants.

Loved that show too. I hope they do another season, because I'm sure he can't be out of projects yet. It was like This Old House, where they actually told you what they were doing and why - with a good dose of history thrown in. No manufactured drama, theatrical destruction or cursing. Besides, anyone who has a trailer full of "spare parts" just incase is OK in my book!

I bet a lot of people don't know that the first Daryl Hall solo album was part of a trilogy along with Peter Gabriel 2 and Robert Fripp's Exposure, with them sharing some of each other's songs. Hall was supposed to supply all the vocals on Exposure, but his record company didn't think that being involved with that type of "avant-garde" music would be good for his pop career.

One of the lighter songs on the Exposure album, with Hall on vocals

Somehow I can't imagine Daryl Hall singing Disengage Peter Hamill was a better choice

I can't go for that.
