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.

RIP J

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

All media were reporting Geils as the vocalist but didn't think they were correct. I never said he was the vocalist either.

Erin Moran, the former Happy Days child star who was found dead at her Indiana home over the weekend, likely died of cancer, according to the Harrison County Sheriff's Office and the county coroner.

A statement released by authorities Monday said that an autopsy found that Moran "likely succumbed to complications of stage 4 cancer."

Toxicology tests were performed and results are pending, but "no illegal narcotics were found" at Moran's residence in New Salisbury, Ind., about 20 miles from Louisville, Ky. 

The statement did not say what kind of cancer Moran had.
