...another great musician has passed

...Founder of the J. Geils (John Warren Geils) has died at his home. The first concert I ever went to was at the Akron Rubber Bowl and the J. Geils band opened for Alice Cooper.....they absolutely killed it!

RIP John

His dialogue on "Love stinks live" was so awesome.

While he was the guy whose name was used with the band it really was Peter Wolf's group and harmonica player, Magic Dick, was the focus of the band's musical sound. Wolf and keyboardist Seth Justman wrote the tunes so they get the royalty $s. Some bad blood developed between Geils and the rest of the band and they eventually kicked him out of reunions, dude grew super bitter with his main point being the name and that was about it as he never really had the chops musically.

One of the best live bands in the '70s and was a great opener for stadium shows. Blow Your Face Out was one of my favorite albums in the '70s and a much better live record than Frampton Comes Alive. The best way to kick start a party was to put this album on the turn table.

Best 70's good-time-party-band. Trying to re-invent themselves in the MTV age seemed to bring those internal struggles to a head.

An underrated party band with three great showmen: Peter Wolf, Magic Dick and J. Geils.

I saw them at UD Arena in the mid-seventies...unfortunately I can't remember anything about it, but I'm sure they were great.
