There were only 5 prior posts in this thread. Surely you checked to see if your question had already been answered?

I guess not.

He died on April 5, 2012. :wink:

Maybe he was asking about why it's come up again per the articles I mentioned I saw yesterday...because it's the 5-year anniversary.

Yeah, it was all over my Facebook this morning, and there wasn't a single "five years" or anything like that.

Yep, old news.

But I am hearing (roughly 7:30PM EST) that J. Geils died today, age 71 :(
