Leader of the J. Geils Band, John Geils, has passed away. He was found in his home in Groton, Massachusetts earlier today. At 4pm, the Groton Police were asked to stop by his home for a “wellness check”. That is where they found him, unresponsive. No foul play is suspected at this time according to authorities.
Geils was a founder of the band but played a background role to the group as far as being the one on camera or in the spotlight.
We remember “Centerfold” and “Freeze Frame” and “Love Stinks”. Our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends, and of course his bandmates.
