What was the story behind Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin collabing with Hall & Oates?

How/why did that union come to be and how/why did it come to end? Are there any particular details behind these 2 duos coming together?

Daryl performed on shows with The Temptations in the 1960s. He was in a group called The Temptones. Daryl was also later a session musician for Thom Bell and Gamble & Huff before Hall & Oates started. So he knew some of the R&B/soul groups of that era.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

John released an autobiography in 2017. I haven't read it, but maybe he mentions how the tour with Eddie & David came about.

Thanks Micky.

Gotta check out Oates' memoir. Should have brought it when it was still at Barnes & Noble.
