Happy Birthday to Peter Wolf of the J. Geils Band!
As the face to one of America’s all-time favorite groups, Wolf provided amazing vocals to some of the most energetic and fun songs of the 70’s and 80’s. With the hit single “Centerfold” and the No. 1 album Freeze Frame, Wolf placed J. Geils at center stage.
Striking out as a solo artist in 1983, Wolf has graced two of Rolling Stone’s most coveted lists: “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” for Sleepless and “50 Most Influential Recorded Albums of the Decade” for 1998’s Fool Parade.
As talented as he is as a musician, Wolf also periodically returns to his roots as a painter.
