"Patrick Stump is one soulful vocalist," says Daryl admiringly. "I was really impressed with his grasp of R&B and it turned out we shared a love for a great deal of the same music."
As a producer, Stump has worked with such bands as Gym Class Heroes, whose vocalist Travis McCoy is also an unabashed Daryl Hall fan and a participant in a previous Live From Daryl's House. Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman calls him "a musical genius, a mad scientist," while noted producer/performer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds says, "Patrick is one of the hottest dudes I've seen in a long time He's got a great voice and a tremendous amount of talent." Fall Out Boy's fifth album, Folie a Deux, was released last December, producing the hit singles, "I Don't Care" and "America's Suitehearts."
Stump puts that great voice straight to work, joining Daryl in a seven-song set highlighted by singles "Out of Touch" and "Guessing Games," the latter from the H2O album. Among the Fall Out Boy songs Daryl and Patrick perform are versions of "I Don't Care," "What a Catch, Donny" and "Sugar, We're Goin Down" along with a cover of Jimmy Ruffin's soul classic, "What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted."
Past episodes of Live from Daryl's House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Smokey Robinson, The Doors' Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy, Finger Eleven's James Black and Rick Jackett and the Bacon Brothers, along with newcomers such as Philly soul singer Mutlu, Canadian techno-rockers Chromeo, MySpace pop-rock phenom Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Wind-up Records' Chicago rockers Company of Thieves, Bay Area singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson, Charlottesville, VA's rising Parachute, Chicago rock band Plain White T's and highly touted tunesmith Diane Birch.
