Oates' Stache

Hall of a Weapon!

7/1/2008 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With any luck, John Oates won't ever play second banana to Daryl Hall again -- but he'll have to lose his boom-chicka-boom-boom moustache in the process.


Well, sort of: Primary Wave, the publisher that owns most of the Hall & Oates catalog is shopping around a cartoon called "J-Stache" in which John's upper-lip hair is used as a weapon to fell such evil stache-wearing villains as Tom Selleck and David Crosby. (If you're sensing irony in all this, you win!)

John Oates doesn't think the plan is hair-brained at all. In fact, he tells TMZ: "When I first heard about the idea for 'J Stache,' my first reaction was -- at last the world is finally ready to again embrace the power of the 'stache. Its time has come again. The creative team at Primary Wave really got it and I wanted to be involved from the beginning."

He looked much better with the moustache. He looks pretty creepy without it!

Loathe must 'staches -- but Sparky's is the worst. Dudes look 10 years younger without 'em, most times.

Hall and Oates would do just fine without the Oates part....remind me please, what parts or vocals does he provide in the duo? The guy is a sawed off runt and if the stache makes/made him feel more powerful good for him, but bad for us.

Like number one said so well---seriously outta touch, and outta time.

In my made-up world, Tom Selleck is always the good guy and John Oates is Mr. Evil....
