Will & Grace Meet Darryl And John

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Will & Grace will be meeting another wacky couple on tonight’s episode: Darryl Hall and John Oates.

The pop duo appears on tonight’s (Feb. 9) episode playing a wedding band, and during the show they sing three of their hits – “Maneater,” “She’s Gone” and “Private Eyes” – in order to comment on the plot.

Oates was happy to do the guest spot and says the fact that the show is in its 8th season makes it a “well-oiled machine.”

Plus, as he puts it, “The writers wrote lines so funny, you don’t have to be comedians to say them.”

The appearance not only marks Hall and Oates’ sitcom debut, but also their only performance as a wedding band. Oates says, “We started out as singer/songwriters so we never did wedding gigs.”

Still, the duo may have future opportunities for them. One of the songs on their last album, Do It For Love, is called “Forever For You” and was picked by various bridal magazines as wedding song of the year.
