David Livingston/Getty ImagesDaryl Hall and John Oates were honored today with the 2,587th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Philadelphia pop-soul duo both gave brief speeches at the unveiling ceremony, as did Eurythmics guitarist/songwriter Dave Stewart and former Atlantic Records president Jerry Greenberg.

Hall, who hosts the acclaimed TV series Live from Daryl’s House, told the crowd that besides joining many famous musicians on the Walk of Fame, he was excited to be represented alongside some of the pioneers of television.

“People like Phil Silvers and Groucho Marx and Jackie Gleason,” said Hall. “These are the people I feel like, ‘Wow, I’m part of this?!'”

He also recalled his and Oates’ audition for Atlantic Records in front on Greenberg and legendary executive Arif Mardin, and remembers being surprised that the label decided to sign them.

They actually saw something that I can’t believe they saw,” noted Daryl.

Oates also referenced the duo’s early audition in Los Angeles during his speech. “L.A. has a really special place in my memories,” he said. “And we recorded three albums out here in the mid-’70s, and it’s always been a blast to come out here.”

Prior to Hall and Oates’ speeches, Stewart and Greenberg both talked about the duo’s achievements and talents.

“They’re so steeped in their own musical history and woven into the tapestry of American culture and music that whatever they do, they sound like this unique duo that can never be replaced,” said Stewart, who co-produced Hall’s 1986 solo Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine.

Greenberg marveled at the many memorable hits Hall & Oates recorded, adding, “I kind of refer to them as the Lennon and McCartney of Philadelphia, and they really deserve that title.”
