Questlove backstage interview at the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions at the Barclays Center in New York City on April 10, 2014. Questlove inducted Daryl Hall and John Oates into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and talks about the influence and impact of Hall and Oates over the years.

"Philadelphians stick by each other, and theres a lot of pride and, you know, love amongst the community: the art community, the music community, the sports community; That's the one thing you can say about Philadelphia, is that we love each other. So, yeah, it was hard to avoid the influence that they had. Blue-eyed soul like they're the proprietors of that brand. They were always on the radio. You couldn't escape them at all. They are by far, Daryl Hall and John Oates, the most successful and the most definitive duo of all time. They've shut down any other duos. There's the Everly brothers, you know, there is a few duos in modern rock history, but they are absolutely the last of the Mohican."
