Rest in Peace, John Warren Geils Jr.
They may have come out of Boston, but if you're a Detroiter of a certain age, you know for a fact that The J. Geils Band is ours.
I don't even know how many times I saw this band, for a while there it seemed like they were in town nearly every week.
Here is J. Geils on guitar, Seth Justman on organ and piano, Stephen Jo Bladd pounding the drums, Danny Klein on bass, the always magnificent Wooba Gooba With The Green Teeth, Peter Wolf on vocals and the great Magic Dick on his lickin' stick.
One of the surest things in the history of Rock and Roll, this is J. Geils live and at the height of their powers in 1977.
"Let me hear ya Dickie."
Yeah, Yeah, I know ..... Whammer Jammer was Magic Dick's moment. But J. Geils always seemed perfectly happy in the background gluing the whole thing together.
At least that's how I remember him.
