Since the inevitable spit-ups and split-ups, what's happened to various band members?
Let''s start with the J Geils Band--J Geils, Magic Dick, Peter Wolf, Seth Justman and and the mystery man and only true Bostonian, Stephen Jo Bladd.
J Geils the Mahoff, the center, the organizer, the producer-in-fact. His inspired bio: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/j-gei...2317/biography The 1 album he's given credit for: http://www.allmusic.com/album/bluestime-mw0000122074 << should rate rate much higher (and does with me)--4/13 picks to click .
some tunes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkwn2OTy83Q << w/Magic Dick, his Bluestime partner and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07KsZjS-0OU << a different concept, more recently and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ieJsugSwOI and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTXuLqPrSXY << funny that this YT I.D. ends with SXY 'cuz it sure is SeXY.
Mr. Geils spent his interim periods and all his free time restoring and racing vintage sports/racing cars.
Magic Dick Acording to some with knowledge, one of the best White harpists ever. Kept very busy as a a sideman during and fter the J Geils Band era. His AMG bio--good if disjointed: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/magic-dick-mn0000228427 He flip-flopped as headliner of Bluestime w/ J Geils--here's AMG on their second CD: http://www.allmusic.com/album/little...s-mw0000189801 His Site: http://www.magicdick.com/
Some songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0q2Vy3fx2I << he loves playing this tune...and we love him for it and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxAZ3YyjtPg << HIPSTER ALERT--I can pretty much guarantee you've never seen anything like this take on a James Brown classic and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkRWh0elAOg << Love the intro ("First I Look at the Purse", done famously raucously by the J Geils Band)
Peter Wolf Lead vocalist and has had a vibrant, productive career since: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/peter...58/discography His Site: http://www.peterwolf.com/ Interesting man: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Wolf
Tunes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1slsQ_rXpzQ << Hasn't turned his back on the classics--just enhanced w/ narrative and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iu2hCOROwZM and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO-59By1_Rg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkC0C4CgJwc << Back-stage rehehearsal w/Shelby Lynne (they do a terrif duet on this). Charming. Transfixing.
BONUS: His solo debut album (in 1984) complete: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W7V_DVC8lw
Stephen Jo Bladd the drummer has apparently dropped out of music, allegedly with back and/or arthritis problems. Unknown as to what he's done since.
Seth Justman Keyboard player/producer/songwriter (he and Peter Wolf co-wrote most of the JGB's material and he wrote all of the Love Stinks album). Seemingly hasn't done much since '86 (produced and partly co-wrote a Debby Harry album).
