John Geils Junior who was the founder of the rock and roll band The J. Geils Band that performed from 1967-1985 was found dead in his home in Groton Massachusetts on Tuesday. Geils, 71, died of natural causes. My memories of the J Geils Band was their hit records "Freeze Frame" and "Centerfold". Geils will be missed by those who enjoyed the music of his band that released 11 albums throughout their career in the music business.

That is true. Many of the rock artists from the 1960s and 1970s are dying out.

The lead singer of the band was Peter Wolf. Did you know he was married to Faye Dunaway in the 70s?

I did know that Peter Wolf was the lead singer of the group. My late niece admired the J Geils Band.

I was shocked to learn that John Geils passed away yesterday. I like the song "Freeze Frame" and his music since he liked jazz music too.
