Daryl was no part of Darren's life aside from the financial support provided after a lengthy court battle. Darren met Daryl for the first time when he was 18, amd was vastly disapointed by the experience.



I won't provide details of their meeting, but Darren has no interest in a relationship with a man who doesn't feel responsible as his biological father. He lives his own life and lives it well. Andrea raised him to be independant, and despite her shortfalls, he's grown to be a talented and extremely intelligent young man. His musical abilities surpass those of his father and his compassion and intelect are also far superior.

Well, if this is true, please tell us why Darren is working for Daryl on thier current Hall & Oates tour? These comment about Daryl are very unkind, and I hope not true.

I know Darren Hall and he is one of the most remarkable young men that I have ever known and extremely talented.  I never asked personal questions regarding Darren and his father, but we all knew who his father is.  Darren, when I knew him, used his musical talent for the greater good. If you think that his dad is talented, you should hear the music that Darren can create.

I am only on the outside edge of this story, but I was friends with Andrea Z. from the time of her pregnancy.  The comments regarding Daryl are true, he never showed any desire to even acknowledge Darren during his childhood.  Also, I don't recall Andrea asking for any $10,000/month (but I remember a $2,000/month request).  Please have compassion for all the persons involved and let them be.  It should be their own business.

I agree that everyone should leave all involved alone and respect their privacy. I recently met both Daryl and Darren at an H&O concert, so they are obviously working out any differences/difficulties they may have had in the past. Darren seems to be a very nice young man, so whomever had a hand in raising him appears to have done a great job!

I have attended several Hall  and Oates concerts this year, at which Darren was working. Daryl always said he didn't want children and never mentioned Darren so I beleive he wasn't close to him before but maybe now that the boy is grown and he's older,things have changed.

Daryl was not part of Darren's life growing up, or at least there was very little invovlment.



Darren now has a good relationship with his father & actually, currently works for him.

You can see Darren as he hands his father his tuned guitars from offstage - he's tall & thin like dad and has long blonde hair....

I personally grew up with Darren and his father was never there, now Darren lives in California and probably spends time with his father over thre. he is pursuing a music career and is the most talented musician I have ever met. his mother is a gold digger and recently remarried for money.

Wow.  Just wow.  First off, why the hell is this child support stuff on the internet?  Not one person has yet quoted a correct figure, nor is it really anyone's business who sued who (not that I really care, anyway)

I'm really posting this to say thanks to Andy...I know who you are Mr AndyBob.  Secondly, whoever this G.B. person is can screw themselves(I wish I could swear on this thing).  I doubt you grew up with me if you have the stones to call my mother a golddigger on the internet.  Let me enlighten your severely uninformed self.  My mother married a HVAC contractor (who is flat broke, by the way) because she loved him, and raising 4 kids by yourself is damn hard.  She deserves to be happy and cared for.  G.B. stands for Gigantic Butthole, yes??

Search YouTube 'Documentary Venice Beach Music Fest Music 2011 Venice Beach Daryl Hall son singing' His son, Darren, gives you incredible insight.

Growing up without a parent is hard; having a father that plays hard to get is devastating to a son, no matter what the age--just ask julian Lennon. Just remember everybody ... The person who is broken here is Daryl -- not Darren. Darren is reacting to the rejection of a father. It will take him a lifetime to sort this out, but it can happen. Good luck to you young man. Hope you play San Diego soon!!

Seems like a person who is a groupie and goes for a one night stand with celebrities, gets what they deserve.  If Darren is as talented as people are saying here, he should have no problems making a successful career in the music business.  After all several people posted he is more talented than Daryl Hall, which I seriously doubt!

There is a woman posting all over youtube and forums, usually under alias David Bray to make it more believable, that Daryl Hall has a daughter named Rakelija who lives in UK.  I've come across it several time. I look up this rakelija on facebook. It's an oh so obvious to anyone that David Bray is actually this woman, Rakelija. She has HUGE brown eyes and her face is nothing like her so-called "dad." LMAO. It's a trap so anyone reading it will look up that name on facebook and think that she is Daryl Hall's daughter. It's also a fake name. Everything about this woman is fake but she chose this name so people who search it, like on Facebook, it automatically pops up to her facebook account.She looks absolutely nothing like Daryl Hall, except that she has bleached blonde hair which she obviously bleached and permed to make the likeness a little more believable.  But she has made fake facebook accounts, then added them as friends so that they "comment" on her facebook page how much she looks like "her dad," and the implication is that her dad is Daryl Hall. Go look it up, it's ludicrous. Its just so F'ing hilarious.
