From the beginning, John Oates wanted “Maneater” to go reggae.
All Darryl has to do is play that for the judge.
Case closed in Halls favor
Not so sure about that. If anything, it suggests that Oates came up with the original as a reggae song, something that Hall has also confirmed in past interviews. Maybe Hall should be paid a royalty as one of the co-writers if the song is performed live or released as a new version, but he can't stop Oates from playing it, regardless of the arrangement.

I was just joking about how terrible that version is.

Paul McCartney was similar to D. Hall - read an interview where he went to a pub and saw sheet music for ‘hey Jude’ and his name was cut off since Lennon’s was first. This irked him into some sort of action.

It’s like they have 99% of the share but that last 1% eats them alive

Restraining Order Muzzles Oates ... Hall Says Keep My Songs Out of Your Mouth!!!
https://www.tmz.com/2023/11/23/hall-and ... olo-court/

Hall & Oates are on the outs over what songs John Oates is allowed to sing by himself ... sources familiar with the dispute tell TMZ.

The 2 -- BTW, the most successful duo in music history -- have been in arbitration, we're told, trying to work out the ground rules of who can sing what as a solo artist, along with money issues of course ... so say our sources.

Hall ran to court on November 16, asking for a restraining order against Oates ... and the judge granted that order the next day.

I like Oates, but that reggae version of Maneater was unlistenable.

My parents saw Hall & Oates at their lowpoint, playing some outdoor patio at a bar in South Carolina in the '90s. Those guys managed to wait it out, get themselves back in arenas, and are now going to torpedo the whole thing over John Oates solo shows?

I would think the lawyer bills over this cost more than anything Oates makes at a solo gig.

Yet another version of "the story."

Daryl Hall is suing John Oates over plan to sell stake in joint venture. A judge has paused the sale
https://apnews.com/article/hall-oates-l ... a592b021d9

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Daryl Hall has sued his longtime music partner John Oates, arguing that his plan to sell off his share of a joint venture would violate the terms of a business agreement the Hall & Oates duo had forged.

The move quickly prompted a judge to temporarily block the sale while legal proceedings and a previously initiated arbitration continue.

A Nashville chancery court judge issued the temporary restraining order on Nov. 16, writing that Oates and others involved in his trust can’t move to close the sale of their share of Whole Oats Enterprises LLP to Primary Wave IP Investment Management LLC until an arbitrator in a separately filed case weighs in on the deal, or until the judge’s order expires — typically within 15 days, unless a judge extends the deadline.

John Oates Opens Up About Partnership With Daryl Hall As Legal Battle Continues
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/john-oat ... 57f5cc783d

“You can’t ignore the fact that the Hall & Oates catalog of hits and the 50-year career will always trump almost anything that Daryl does on his own or I do on my own, which is OK, because I’m very proud of that music,” Oates said. “I think we made music that will stand the test of time.”

“But, at the same time, I’m not very nostalgic,” he said. “I make the analogy of what it’s like when you go to a great museum, and you’re really excited to go and see all the beautiful paintings or the exhibits or whatever it might be, and then near the end, your feet start to hurt and you say, ‘You know what? I can’t wait to get out of here.’ That’s kind of how I feel about it.”
