    RIP J Geils

    I can't say I was ever a big J Geils Band fan (do like a couple of their songs), but still sad to hear the band's namesake has died.

    A Boston favorite. Saw the J Geils Blues Band open for BB King in January of 1970 at the Boston Tea Party.

    Jumpin at the Shadows is great

    I did! I was in college and had a job as a messenger/copier guy with an old line Boston law firm. One of the partners was a very cool lawyer just getting started in entertainment law and represented Don Law, concert promoter and manager of The Boston Tea Party rock club: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston...concert_venue) Some of the best groups of the '60s and '70s played the Tea Party and whenever I wanted to go, all I had to do was ask the atty and I'd be placed "on the list". I'd walk up to the back door, past the long lines, give them my name, and get in for free. I saw many of the great groups of the time in an intimate atmosphere. Most memorable was the Dead on New Year's Eve.

    Um Don, you are here, or you account has been hacked by a very benign LBC fan.
