Live From Daryl's House
22 MAY 2012 | Posted By: NickJ
Some of the world's coolest shit often comes from a simple yet killer idea. And when you're one half of iconic '70/80s 'rock and soul' outfit Hall & Oates, Daryl Hall, you've got the cash and the connections to make those ideas a reality.
Back in 2007, Dazza decided one day he'd love to invite some of his muso mates over to his joint (a palatial Connecticut ranch with inbuilt studio and indoor pool), lay down some tracks, video the whole thing and put it on the interwebs. He did just that, called it Live From Daryl's House and got mad props from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC and Yahoo! Music who all reckon it was an awesome example of a veteran musician who's managed to reconnect himself with modern music and become relevant again.
We've chosen his jam session with Canadian electro funk duo Chromeo as they bust out a take on the Hall & Oates classic 'I Can't Go For That'. It's seriously nice stuff and def worth checking out the rest of the series.
