Daryl Hall was born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania on 11th October 1946. Daryl Hall’s professional life began while he was still a student at Temple University.

Along with John Oates, their first efforts together were heavily folk influenced, and in no way resembled the sound that would catapult them into the pop stratosphere.
