Tonight’s installment is from another band I never did have a whole lot of use for, but this one is…well, it’s simply monstrous.
That’s some mighty tasty harp playin’ right there. Whatever your opinion of J Geils might be, there’s no gainsaying Magic Dick. He’s a true master of the beast—an instrument the bassist/harpist from a band we toured with (whose identity I shan’t reveal here, for their own protection) always called a “nigger whistle.” I laughed so hard I think I cracked a rib or two the first time I heard Joey say that.
Big J. Geils fan from before they hit it big with the New Wave stuff.
One of the best, hardest rocking, showman live bands ever too.
