Hall & Oates
Daryll Hall and John Oates are best remembered for hits such as “Out Of Touch” and “Kiss On My List.” But after working together for the good part of 50 years, the pop rock duo have never seemed to face any serious band problems. When asked in an interview in 1983 whether they ever experienced conflict, Oates stated that “we have our creative differences but we reconcile them.” Hall and Oates are the third best-selling music duo of all time, with over 40 million albums sold worldwide.
Morrissey – The Smiths
One of the true poets of our time, the frontman of the legendary band The Smiths has written some of the most profound lyrics over the last 30 years. Although The Smiths are no longer active after hits such as “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” and “Bigmouth Strikes Again,” Morrissey still has a fruitful solo career. His latest album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, was released in 2014. An avid activist for animal rights, Morrissey has lived a relatively healthy life since becoming a vegetarian, and is now a vegan.
David Lee Roth – Van Halen
Selling over 56 million records worldwide, Van Halen are undoubtedly rock royalty. Due to creative differences, the man behind classics such as “Jump” has had an on and off relationship with lead guitarist Eddie Van Halen over the years. But since getting back together in 2007, the band have released two more albums, including the successful comeback record A Different Kind Of Truth, followed by the tour of the same name. And even though Roth’s golden locks are long gone, he’s still jumping for joy at every show.
