J. Geils, RIP

J Geils

J. Geils, lead guitarist of The J. Geils Band, has passed away at age 71, Boston Globe reports. He was found in his home in Groton, Massachusetts late Tuesday afternoon. According to the article, “Groton police found him after responding for a well-being check at his house. Foul play is not suspected, the police department said in a statement, but his death is still being investigated.”

The J. Geils Band released their debut album in 1970, and were responsible for huge hits in the following decade like “Love Stinks,” “Centerfold,” “Freeze Frame.” J left the band in 2012, though they toured without him through 2015.

Rest in peace J.
