Singer/songwriter, Daryl Hall from the 1980's popular singing duo, Hall and Oates, is still suffering over the death of his good friend, Tom "T-Bone" Wolk.
Back in 2010 when Hall started production of his newest album, "Laughing Down Crying," Tom Wolk was not only Hall's closest friend but also his collaborator. After recording only one song, Wolk suddenly died at the age of 58 from a heart attack. Hall and Wolk were in the recording studio together just hours earlier.
The death of his good friend sent Hall into a whirlwind. He discovered that Tom's death changed the way he tackled music and how he recorded his new album.
Daryl Hall, who has reinvented himself with his popular award-winning web series, "Live From Daryl's House", has been touring throughout the US and is now in England. According to Contact Music, he told Britain's Sunday Express, "My best friend died in the first week of the production of the album; one of my closest collaborators died suddenly and that affected the way I approach music."
Although Hall has struggled to deal with Wolk's death, it's hard for fans to actually see how it has affected him. Hall and his band have been on tour almost constantly. He just played with Queen Latifah a week ago for a July 4th concert in Philadelphia where she joined him in singing "Sara Smile."
Even though the loss of his good friend might have changed the way he sees music, Daryl Hall still plays for his fans whenever he can.
