J. Geils, guitarist for the J. Geils Band that bears his name, sits down with Emily Rooney Feruary 4 for an entire episode of Greater Boston. We'll be posting outtakes from Geils home all week.

“I've always been enthused about Italian cars because the Italians build cars like we play music,” Geils said. “They build cars with passion and soul.”

Watch Greater Boston at 7 p.m. on Monday with 1 Guest J. Geils.

“Every one -- over the past year I've had occasion to drive them all within a short period of time,” he said. “And everyone is so absolutely Italian, yet entirely different from the other one. It's that thing. It's that soul, that passion that the Italians have. It gets built in, somehow.”
