We lost a true guitar hero, J. Geils, on April 11th.
He mentions touring with the Stones in 1982 – were you one of the 100,000 who attended their show at the L.A. Coliseum? The band was rocking that day!
But he and the band had disputes later, and there aren’t many great live show on youtube with J. Geils in them – lately the band was playing without him. But this video has him talking about his guitars, and playing a little:
If you get a chance, watch the next video too about his Italian cars!
Didn’t see them with the “Stones”, but saw them as the opening act for “Ten Years After”. The second act was “Yes”. When TYA took the stage, Alvin Lee looked out in the audience and commented we all looked a little wasted. It was one of those nights.
That had to be a long night!
