Founding J. Geils Band Guitarist John Geils Dead At 71

According to CNN, the police found Geils unresponsive at his home in Groton when they went for a "well-being check", and he was declared dead at the scene.

Palma said Groton police are investigating the death, as they do all unattended deaths, but that no foul play is suspected.

The band broke up in 1985, with Geils turning towards his other passions of auto racing and restoration. He founded the J. Geils Band in 1968 and the group landed on the Billboard 200 in 1973 for their record Bloodshot.

Wolf wrote a short message on Facebook about his former bandmate, “Thinking of all the times we kicked it high and rocked down the house!

He said attempts to remove Syrian president Bashar al-Assad from power "won't succeed" during the meeting in Moscow on Friday. Russian Federation vetoed a United Nations resolution this week condemning the chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Last night, the world learned that Geils had passed away at his home in Groton, Massachusetts.

Blending Justman's New Wave-y organs with solid rock riffs (and a story that mixed old-fashioned nostalgia with an inviting layer of sleaze) the song was The J. Geils Band's only number one Billboard hit.

"I know you usually only take in-park requests, but maybe you could play a J. Geils tune in light of this sad breaking news", one person asked Josh Kantor, who plays the organ at Red Sox games.

The J. Geils Band released a total of 12 albums over the course of 10 years.

"Come Back" (from Love Stinks, 1980) - Their '80s reinvention starts with their first album of the decade, Love Stinks.

The band is best known for its album Freeze Frame and the song "Centerfold", which hit No. 1 for six weeks.

The J. Geils Band failed in its attempt to get featured in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after a fourth nomination, this time for the class of 2017. Wolf did not appear on the band's final album "You're Gettin' Even While I'm Gettin' Old" and the remaining members chose to split a year later in 1985. Mr. Geils was the group's guitarist. Named Bluestime, the band released two records - "Bluestime" (1994) and "Little Car Blues" (1996) - with Rounder Records, USA Today reported.
