I once saw John Oates solo, and he played blues music really well and had a great voice as well. He said to the audience that someone asked him one time if he is jealous that Daryl sings the hit songs. John Oates said one of the smartest things I have ever heard. He said, no, he said that Daryl sounded better and they wanted to put out the best product they could. He said I get paid the same whether I sing back up or I sing lead. That's why they are who they are.
