Geils Band, was found dead in his Groton, Massachusetts, home on Tuesday (April 11), police confirmed. He was declared dead at the scene...
Palma said Groton police are investigating the death, as they do all unattended deaths, but that no foul play is suspected. That album contained the legendary track "Centerfold" - the only chart-topping hit from the band, though the title track also peaked within the Top Ten.
Their self-titled debut album was released in 1970, with Geils and Wolf joined by Danny Klein, Magic Dick Salwitz and Stephen Bladd. They reached the top 40 with a single from that set, their cover of Bobby Womack's 'Looking For A Love'. (1982 / #23), Wolf left the band over the traditional "creative differences" and the band released one final studio album, You're Gettin' Even While I'm Gettin' Odd (1984 / #80), with Seth Justman out front.
Following reports of Geils' death, fans and fellow musicians alike have been taking to social media to express their condolences.
The J. Geils Band was one of the most popular American touring bands of the 1970s.
When the J. Geils Band called it quits in 1985, Geils turned his attention to auto racing and restoration.
The band was known for such hits as "Love Stinks", "Freeze Frame" and "Centerfold".
"Must of Got Lost" (from Nightmares...and Other Tales from the Vinyl Jungle, 1974) - This Wolf/Justman song was their biggest hit yet, hitting #12 on the pop charts.
While the band was tour throughout the 1980s, their opening acts included rock greats such as The Eagles, Billy Joel, ZZ Top and U2.
In recent years, the band toured without Geils because of a legal dispute with his record label, which claimed ownership of the band's name, according to the Facebook page. Both live albums - "Live" Full House and "Blow Your Face Out" - are considered timeless rock-blues classics that captured the band at the height of their craziest.
