Which Band Got Together Because the Members Were Running From a Gun Fight?

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Guns N' Roses
Hall & Oates
U2

Answer: Hall & Oates

Hall & Oates, a musical duo composed of Daryl Hall & John Oates, got together in the late 1960s as the result of a ballroom brawl turned ugly. In 1967, both men were at the Adelphi Ballroom in Philadelphia promoting their own separate musical groups in a “battle of the bands” style competition. The music wasn’t the only thing people were fighting over, however. Rival gang members in the crowd began to fight, guns were drawn, and when the shots rang out, Hall and Oates found themselves united, both escaping the chaos in a service elevator behind the stage.

The two stage refugees hit it off, found that they had quite a bit in common (like both attending Philadelphia’s Temple University), and even ended up becoming roommates. When they decided to form a musical act together in 1970, they lifted their band name right off the mailbox of their apartment: “Hall & Oates”.
