103. The J. Geils Band

Although the J. Geils Band appeared as an overnight success in the early 80’s, they were anything but. After delivering a series of albums throughout the 1970’s that delivered a few minor hits, the J. Geils band found a good following in the North East but could not translate the energy of their live act to studio recordings or to the radio. When they did hit it big, they broke up shortly after, thus raising the question whether the overall body of work is Hall worthy. With two recent nominations and a perceived love from Jann Wenner, they could find themselves in.     The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1995   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
