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.
