Just to give you an idea how the big band was in the early '80s -- the Eagles, U2 and Billy Joel all opened for J. Geils on the road

RIP J Geils

Centerfold is one of those classics from the 80's that just

sticks in your head. I like Love Stinks and Freeze Frame too.

I also remember Darcel Wynne twerking to Freeze Frame on

Solid Gold.

The J. Geils Band had their funky side, too.

Remember Prince's controversial performance as the opener for the Rolling Stones on October 9th, 1981?

Also performing on that same bill was J. Geils Band.

RIP John Warren Geils Jr.

Oh wow! I hadn't even heard. sad

Detroit's ONE and ONLY Electrifying MOJO used to play the hell out of the J. Geils Band. Flamethrower, Freeze Frame, Centerfold...yes...sounds of my youth. Rest well, Mr. Geils. Thank you for the music. rose
