The J. Geils Band are a gritty American rock ‘n’ roll band that produced some of the best rock of the 1970’s and 1980’s. Named after guitarist Jerome Geils, and featuring lead singer Peter Wolf, they have sold millions of albums.
The band placed 18 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart between 1971 and 1985. Their biggest hit was released November 7, 1981. “Centerfold” topped The American singles charts for six weeks. It ranked as one of the top 15 charting singles of the 1980’s.
“Centerfold” may have been a little more pop/rock oriented than most of their material, but it was great pop/rock. A great story of worshipping a girl in school and later seeing her as a centerfold in a magazine.
It remains on of the great party songs.
