    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“In the '80s Milli Vanilli was ruined by lip-synching, ... but now it's looked upon as enhancing people's careers. Today the weirder and creepier your life is, the more successful you are. There no longer seems to be any substance [to performers and bands] today. Everybody just wants to be famous. We come from a more traditional old school. We're proud that we sing and play live. We grew up paying our dues, learning from our masters.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Which is why it's spectacularly appropriate that The Funk Brothers - Motown's original house band - are opening up for Hall & Oates.] It's a great bill, ... We're carrying on their tradition. So we'll see when we get into Montreal if we're going to play a few songs together.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The idea was to take these great songs, take them out of their production style and their dated recording style, and show them for the songs that they are--as if you had just played them on an acoustic guitar. It's all about timeless songwriting, really.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I think we've always prided ourselves and perceived ourselves as songwriters, so it wasn't an album that we felt we had to do, ... But we knew that some day we'll do an album like that, and it will be fun. That's what it was really about. It was just the right time to do it.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“This music is like an old friend, one for whom you will always feel a kinship and closeness. When people hear this recording they will understand more clearly the roots of our original songs and perhaps have a bit more insight into where they really came from.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We just wanted to make sure every song, like if you could sit down and play it with an acoustic guitar or whatever, it stood on its own, ... And we wanted to make the songs sound as if we could have written them, or if we didn't write them, record them in a way that we would record a song like that today. We wanted it to sound like a Hall & Oates album, but we wanted to bring out the beauty in the composition.”
