More Seth Justman

Keyboardist, producer, and co-writer for the J. Geils Band, Seth Justman comes across as fully committed to the group in this interview with Lisa Robinson. And while there is still no reason to doubt his earnestness, the irony here is that Peter Wolf would leave the group shortly after this chat was recorded.
