John Oates Net Worth: John Oates is an American rock, R&B and soul guitarist, musician, songwriter and producer who has a net worth of $60 million. John Oates is most widely recognized as a member of the music duo, Hall and Oates, with Daryl Hall. With Hall and Oates, he has sold 40 million records internationally, and had ten number one hits, most of which he co-wrote. He released solo albums in 2002 and 2008.
He was born John William Oates on April 7, 1949, in New York City. It was back in 1966 that he recorded his first single, "I Need Your Love," together with The Masters for Philadelphia-based Crimson Records, but he rose to fame once he teamed up with Hall. They met in 1967, but signed their first recording contract in early 1972. In addition to his role as a guitarist in the duo, Oates also co-wrote many of the singles they recorded, including (with Hall): "Sara Smile", "She's Gone", and "Out of Touch", as well as (with Allen & Hall): "You Make My Dreams", "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)", "Maneater", and "Adult Education". John went on to sing lead vocals on several singles that did not rank as Top 10, like "How Does It Feel to Be Back", "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" (a remake of The Righteous Brothers' song), on which Oates and Hall shared vocals, and "Possession Obsession" (with Allen & Hall). While a top 10 hit that he co-wrote and sang backup is the song "Electric Blue", which was recorded by the band Icehouse. John Oates was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2004.
Real Estate: John and his wife Aimee first bought land in Woody Creek, Colorado in 1994 for $660 thousand. They soon discovered that the writer Hunter S. Thompson was living in across the street and was even keeping his famous Red Shark Cadillac convertible in a garage on the Oates property. They became good friends. In 1997 they build a 5,000 square foot log cabin on the 4.3-acre property. John and Aimee listed the home for sale in 2017 for $6 million after deciding to spend more time at a home they own in Nashville. They lowered the price to $4.6 million but ultimately did not find a buyer and still own the property as of this writing.
In 2016 John paid $2.21 million for a home in Nashville that was at one time owned by Taylor Swift. The 1920s Tudor home is located in an historic and exclusive neighborhood called Whitland. Taylor Swift bought the property in 2014 for $1.4 million as a home for her parents but ultimately sold it for a slight loss.
