Critic wrote:Another R.I.P. John Warren Geils Jr., founder of The J. Geils Band, was found dead in his home Tuesday in Massachusetts.
Police say the death is not suspicious.
They scored a number one with "Centerfold" in 1981.
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.
John Geils was 71 years old.

FWIW, the singer for the band was Peter Wolf, not J Geils, he was just the guitarist and songwriter
