John Oates

About John Oates

John Oates was destined to be a musician. Singing from the time he could talk and
playing the guitar since the age of five, his calling in life was never in question. Born in
New York City, his family moved to a small town outside of Philadelphia Pennsylvania
in the early 50’s…. a move that would change the course of his life. Like most kids at that
time, the impact of the early days of rock left an lasting impression on John. At the age of
four he witnessed his first live concert: Bill Haley and the Comets playing their classic
rockabilly hits at a local amusement park. Then there were the records…

He began to collect 45 rpm singles …treasures from Little Richard, Chuck Berry, the
Everly Brothers, Gary U.S. Bonds and of course, Elvis. He spent countless hours twisting
the dial on his AM transistor radio trying to tune in the local R&B stations and listening
to DJs like Jerry Blavat spinning obscure Doo Wop records and B sides.
