DAY 130 GRAMMY CHASE: HALL AND OATES

Despite 8 long lasting #1 chart-topping hits, numerous other hit songs, 60 million albums sold, landmark and signature sound, Hall and Oates have NEVER been awarded with a Grammy. THIS is just crazy and hard to believe. But, in fact, there is a long list of talents that haven’t been recognized for their contributions to music that may even be larger known named acts. After nearly 30 years of collaboration, they have only been nominated twice, most recently in 2009 for a song from one of their earlier albums, turned into a country song-cover. Jokingly, just based off the DOPE mustache of John Oates, they should’ve had a Grammy long ago…All things considered, Hall and Oates are CLASSIC, but No Grammy?? Well, I Can’t Go for That!!…
