Summary
"John Oates was born at the perfect time, paralleling the birth of rock and roll. Raised in a small Pennsylvania town, he was exposed to folk, blues, soul, and R & B. After he met and teamed up with Daryl Hall in the late 1960s, they developed a style of music that was uniquely their own, but never abandoned their roots. In his memoir, John uncovers the grit and struggle it took to secure a recording contract with legendary Atlantic Records, and chronicles the artistic twists and turns that resulted in a DJ discovering an obscure album track that would become their first hit record. This is not your typical rock-and-roll story. John's journey spans many cultural eras and includes a wildly diverse collection of friendships with legends such as Hunter S. Thompson and George Harrison. Through it all, John has focused on creating great music. He achieved incredible success while battling the ever-changing pop music landscape and coming to terms with complex managerial, business, and personal challenges. Daryl Hall and John Cates have made twenty-one albums together, sold more than sixty million records, and have had twenty-nine Top 40 hits. They are the most successful pop duo in the world and members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And yet John's story has never been told. Relying on his many handwritten journals, he brings to light many fascinating stories, ranging over his entire life, with a journalist's eye and a poet's heart. In Change of Seasons, John shares his highs, lows, triumphs, and failures. He takes the reader on a wild ride through all the eras, personalities, and music that have shaped him into who he is."--Jacket
