    LOS ANGELES – Tom "T-Bone" Wolk, who was the bass player in NBC's "Saturday Night Live" house band from 1986 to 1992, but was best known as the longtime bass player for the band led by pop-rock stars Daryl Hall and John Oates, has died. He was 58.

    Wolk died Sunday in New York, hours after completing a recording session with Hall, who was working on a solo album, the duo's manager, Jonathan Wolfson, said Monday. Wolfson said the cause of death was believed to be a heart attack.

    Wolk had been scheduled to appear Monday night on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" with Hall and Oates.

    I loved him as the old man in the Jingle Bell Rock video and as the guy with the beret in the awesomely cheesy Family Man video, the one with the Defender-esque video characters.

    They had a really nice tribute to him on Stern yesterday, who worked with him very early in his career.
