  1. Geils was wonderful.

    And I bet more than half of the people who read this news now believe Peter Wolf is dead, since the band HAD to be named after the singer, right???

          I totally did not know that Alan Parsons wasn’t the singer.

          • They used a bunch of singers early on, then mostly settled on Eric Woolfson once his cuts began to predominate among the hits. This bit of pedantry brought to you by a former kid with too many prog albums in his collection.

      • Alan Parsons Project

        Montrose!!! (That must make Sammy special somehow . . .why can’t the band ever be named after him?)

        Mike and the Mechanics

        I have had to turn my pedant filter off tonight on this topic, as also seeing wide number of social media responses praisin Geils for writing (your favorite song here).

        Wolf is gracious and will let it slide. Justman is probably lawyering up to sue them all for their errors.

    Do the Ramones count? I feel like they were named after Johnny and Dee Dee just as much as Joey.
