Booksmith presents John Oates: Change of Seasons: A Memoir
As half of the iconic duo of Hall & Oates, John Oates has achieved incredible success. Together, he and Daryl Hall made over twenty albums, sold more than 60 million records, had 29 Top 40 hits, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and have recently gotten stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Today Oates is as an accomplished solo artist. For the first time, he is sharing his story in Change of Seasons: A Memoir with Chris Epting. Based on journals he's kept throughout his life, Change of Seasons contains never-before-shared anecdotes and pictures from a life lived on the road and in the studio. His legions of fans will finally hear the stories behind the songs, the lessons from a life navigating the music industry, and his reflections on a remarkable 50 year partnership. The first printing of the book will also include an exclusive five track album that includes a special live version of Maneater.
Joining John in conversation is co-author of the book and award-winning journalist Chris Epting, who has written for many publications including The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Loudwire.
