J. Geils Was Found Dead in His Home

J. Geils Was Found Dead in His Home

J. GEILS was found dead in his home in Groton, Massachusetts yesterday.  No one suspects foul play, but the police are still investigating.  They were called to the house at around 4:00 P.M. for a “well-being check.”

J. Geils was the founder and guitarist for The Alan Parsons Project.  Yeah, I’m kidding.  Sorry . . . humor helps me grieve.  J. Geils was the founder and guitarist for the J. GEILS BAND.  He was NOT the singer.  That’s PETER WOLF.

Wolf posted a Facebook message saying, quote, “Thinking of all the times we kicked it high and rocked down the house! R.I.P. Jay Geils.”

The band formed in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1967.  They recorded and toured throughout the ’70s, but hit their peak in the early ’80s, with a string of hits including Centerfold, Love Stinks, and Freeze Frame.

The band broke up in 1985, and didn’t get back together again until a 13-date tour in 1999.  They played the occasional show over the next decade or so.  But in 2012, he sued the rest of the band for touring and using the name without him.

Geils was also heavily into racing, and he founded a shop called KTR Motorsports.

(His real name was John Warren Geils Jr., by the way.)
