J. Geils R.I.P.
Like many people I was only really familiar with John Warren Geils Jr from Centrefold the number 1 hit single from the J. Geils Band.
Again like many people I had assumed he was the singer when he was in fact the lead guitarist. The singer was Peter Wolf
For ages a friend was on at me to acquire Blow Your Face Out a 1976 live album by the band. Knowing only Centrefold I resisted to the extent that he ended up buying it and giving it to me.
Some splendid Blues and a whole lot better that Centrefold as these two songs will testify.
Rest easy JG
