Kiss on my list

John Oates is the granddaddy of moustachioed rockers. Yeah, it's not really rock he plays, but no one has dedicated as much of his life to the ’stache as John Oates. For nearly 20 years he risked ridicule and the ire of Daryl Hall to keep his lip covered. No one with a 'stache has sat at the top of the pop charts as long as Oates (he and Hall are the most successful duo in history; check out their recently released Live at the Troubadour to see why). Even though he recently shaved it, Oates still has a phantom one: for us it’s always there, even when it's not there.
