The J. Geils Band was one of the most popular touring rock & roll bands in America during the 70s. Where their contemporaries were influenced by the heavy boogie of British blues-rock and the ear-splitting sonic adventures of psychedelia, the J. Geils Band was a bar band pure and simple, churning out greasy covers of obscure R&B, doo wop, and soul tunes, cutting them with a healthy dose of Stonesy swagger. While their muscular sound and the hyper jive of frontman Peter Wolf packed arenas across America, it only rarely earned them hit singles. Seth Justman, the groups main songwriter, could turn out catchy R&B-based rockers like Give It to Me and Must of Got Lost, but these hits never led to stardom, primarily because the group had trouble capturing the energy of its live sound in the studio. In the early 80s, the group tempered its driving rock with some pop, and the makeover paid off with the massive hit single Centerfold, which stayed at number one for six weeks. By the time the band prepared to record a follow-up, tensions between Justman and Wolf had grown considerably, resulting in Wolfs departure, which quickly led to the bands demise. After working for years to reach to top of the charts, the J. Geils Band couldnt stay there once they finally achieved their goal.
