Hall + Oates Starstruck

American pop duo DARYL HALL and JOHN OATES were left starstruck by the glittery line-up on 1985 charity single WE ARE THE WORLD.

The ABANDONED LUNCHEONETTE hitmakers were so in awe of performers such as MICHAEL JACKSON, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, DIANA ROSS and RAY CHARLES they felt like teenage fans - but insists all the other stars were the same.

Hall says, "If you take a bunch of superstars and put them in a room where they don't have their assistants and entourage, it's funny to see what happens.

"Everybody turned into 14-year-olds, telling teenage jokes and asking each other for their autographs, apart from BOB DYLAN who was skulking in the corner somewhere!"

We Are The World has since been re-released to raise money for victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami.
