Ditto!

The guy doesn't get nearly enough credit as a singer. He may not be to everyone's taste, but it's hard to deny the skill and soul in his singing.

We recently watched a Hall & Oates concert DVD recorded in Dublin in 2014 and he's singing nearly as well now as in the 70s. I think the only thing that was out of his range was the extended high note at the start of the final chorus of "She's Gone". They rearranged it and he took a lower harmony while the other band members did the other harmony parts.

Pretty amazing, considering the guy is 70.

John Oates, on the other hand, seems to have real vocal problems these days. His range is shot, and his voice is very gravelly. He sang a fair number of their early songs - especially on Abandoned Luncheonette.
