Our very own Townsman Oats made mention of how strange it is seeing T-Bone Wolk play guitar with Hall and Oates these days, making particular note of the fact that the former bassist has different faces to accompany his guitar playing. Good point!
I guess Wolk’s former compadre G.E. Smith no longer plays with them. I’m sure he’s moved onto bigger and better things since wincing for the cameras as SNL cut to commercial breaks during the show’s mullet years. Not much is made of Smith’s departure from the Hall and Oates fold, but I’m sure it’s significant.
A video to make you reconsider seeking out those Hall and Oates “deep cuts.”
However, the most significant change in the pop duo’s line-up has gotten even less ink. Check out this old publicity shot of the band. As usual, key sidemen like Wolk and Smith are not pictured, but a third member who might have been considered an equal member of a trio act – not a duo – is.
Now check out this more recent shot of the – no doubt about it, anymore – duo.
Anyone know what’s become of Oates’ ‘stache?
