Abstract:

"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. T 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.
