J. Geils, leader of The Geils Band, whose hard-driving hits of the late 1970s and early 1980s included “Centerfold,” “Freeze Frame” and “Love Stinks,” died on Tuesday at his home in Groton, Massachusetts, police said. He was 71.

Groton police said Geils, whose full name was John Warren Geils Jr., appeared to have died of natural causes. After a “well-being check” at his house at 4 p.m., Geils was discovered unresponsive and was declared dead at the scene, police said.
