RIP: T-Bone Wolk

Tom "T-Bone" Wolk, a 30-year bassist/collaborator with pop icons Hall & Oates, died of a sudden heart attack on Feb.27th.

Once referred to by Hall as "the ampersand in Hall & Oates", Wolk was scheduled to appear tonight with his long-time employers on Jimmy Fallon's 1st anniversary show.

Eerily, this past weekend, unaware of the well-regarded musician's passing, we found ourselves visiting Daryl Hall's Live form Daryl's House website for the first time in months and soaking up some of the stellar performances, of which Wolk was an integral part. Man...

T-Bone was 58 years old.

Much love for H&O 'round here. At the height of their popularity they wrote some great pop songs. Timeless, actually.
