There's a lot of anger in the clip of Hall on Bill Maher's podcast that they have in that TMZ interview. Dude has a chip on his shoulder.

I agree. It sounded just like EVH diminishing Michael Anthony's contributions. Why go there? Most people know you're the brain of the operation.

Uh oh.
Sounds like the dreaded "Garfunkel Syndrome."

Lou Costello and The Everly Brothers suffered from it too.
Cher successfully beat it.

It's a laugh (Whoo ooh ooh ooh)
What a laugh (Whoo ooh ooh ooh)
It's so stupid, I gotta laugh (Whoo ooh ooh ooh)

Hall: "We were separate on the records, too." (ref. that Bill Maher interview)

I knew I had read this not too long ago, and indeed, I found the quote from Oates, where he agrees with that sentiment; he did back in 2013, anyway:
They have always objected to being referred to as Hall & Oates, however. “The idea of this two-headed monster is not anything we’ve ever wanted,” Oates noted in 2013.
ref: The Telegraph

There's nothing new there at least, though the lawsuit is definitely a recent development. Sad.

Probably nothing to do with it but saw a recent interview where Oates was saying he came up with Maneater originally, but I could imagine Hall being that petty to have a problem with it.

The album was a flop tho, and H2O fell off the charts forever 5 years after.

Hall said the same thing about "Maneater" 15 years ago. It started as an Oates song with completed chords and at least some of the lyrics. Hall rearranged it and maybe added a bit here and there, and Sara Allen added a few new lyrics.

That's largely accurate. Hall, while the more important of the two as a writer and singer, didn't exactly leave a lasting impression without Oates, except for his TV show years later. (I think he invited Oates on a couple of times.) As well, he couldn't have made it so big without Sara and Janna Allen, who also co-wrote a bunch of their hits.

You can't rely on the old band's money

I bet Hall used a Private Eye to find out what Oates was doing. They're watching you. They see your every move.

It's been reported that Oates said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man, and my bark is much worse than my bite."

Oates Recorded New Version of Hall & Oates Hit 'Maneater' — but Has No Idea If Daryl Hall Likes It

From the beginning, John Oates wanted “Maneater” to go reggae.

What I don't understand is how he can prevent Oates from performing certain songs live. Can an artist not perform any song they like live? I'm not talking about royalties, just the right to perform a song.
