Hall & Oates clash in court over alleged attempted music sale.

The bandmates, Daryl Hall and John Oates, who formed the band Hall & Oates, are currently locked in a legal dispute in which Hall claims Oates has secretly tried to sell half of their music to record labels in order to make money.

A 77-year-old bandmate of Oates has filed a declaration in a Tennessee court expressing his deep disapproval of the public revelation of the private feud he has had with the 76-year-old singer, which his public statements have exacerbated.

The legal documents obtained by TMZ indicate that Oates regrets Daryl’s accusation against him in the legal documents obtained by the publication, stating, “I am deeply disappointed that Daryl Hall decided to file a declaration from our private arbitration proceedings in this proceeding in the interest of making inflammatory, outlandish, and inaccurate statements against me.”

The 77-year-old has consistently been adamant that he wants to be perceived as an individual and not as a duo or group rather than being perceived as a member of a duo or group which has been extremely difficult for him to deal with,” he said.

Interestingly, Oates’ response comes after his partner has sued him for allegedly trying to sell half of the music they have created together. Legal documents obtained by the publication indicate that Daryl claimed that Oates had tried to sell the music to ruin his latest tour as a means to ruin his career.

There is no doubt that Daryl Hall and John Oates were both acclaimed musicians back in 1972 when they took their first steps onto the music scene. In 2014, they received the honor of being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
