It has been almost 10 years since Hall & Oates charted their last single. It has been a month after the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominated the group for the first time, so it's a great time for Daryl Hall and John Oates to record again.
Oates said: "Never say never. Daryl and I are actually thinking about doing a single. We don't really see a need to actually do an album. We're actually interested in kind of mining our deep, deep catalog, which we feel has been overshadowed by the success of our No. 1 records. I don't mean that to sound arrogant; it's a really great problem to have, is that people know us so much for our hits. We feel we have so much interesting music that we created over the years, we want to somehow bring that back out to the public."
Talking about their Rock Hall recognition, Oates said: "This list puts the cherry on top. You know what I really like about what's going on with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, especially, is that they've opened up the voting to the public."
More than 1.2 million people have voted online. As of Friday (Nov 29th), Hall and Oates trailed Kiss, Nirvana, Deep Purple and Yes in the Hall's online fan poll of the 16 nominees. If they keep this position, they will advance with four other groups next month to the Hall's final nominee list. Vote here
A Detroit man is using CPR dummies dressed as gang members to protect his home. The mannequins stand guard on his porch 24 hours a day 7 days a week. His house is the only one that's still cared for on an abandoned street in a dangerous area. He said people drive by slowly since it's the only house being taken care of, they see the "gang members", and take off. If they drive by again and realize they're not real, they figure out they're being watched, and they end up taking off.

Happy birthday to our man Lonnie Jordan from War. He turns 65 today (11/21). We always have a great time when Lonnie and War throw it down at our concerts.
Here's one of my favorite War jams!
There are at least some readers of "Fifty Shades of Grey" that are enjoying the erotic best seller a little too much. Professors tested popular library books and found Fifty Shades of Grey' to contain traces of herpes and cocaine. Click here for the story.
