  • Wolf is currently on a tour with Kid Rock and Rev. Run on The Rock N Roll Revival Tour. He performed Love Stinks solo with Kid Rock`s band. Then he joined Kid Rock for Ain`t Too Proud To Beg, Musta Got Lost,Centerfold and For What Its Worth.
  • Wolf was married to actress Faye Dunaway from 1974 to 1979. He studied painting in Stockbridge, Massachusetts with Norman Rockwell as a boy.
  • Wolf became a solo artist for the next 15 years, but in 1999 the J. Geils Band reunited for several appearances, with Wolf resuming his duties as lead vocalist. They have since separated again, with little hopes of reunion. Wolf then began touring once more, as a solo act.
  • He formed a group called the Hallucinations who performed with The Velvet Underground, Howlin` Wolf, Muddy Waters, Pete`s good friend Van Morrison, John Lee Hooker, and Sun Ra. He then saw the then J. Geils Blues Band in concert and quickly joined. He was the vocalist and frontman, and often acted as a sort of manager.
  • He planned a career as an artist, but landed a job in the late 1960s as a disc jockey on then-cutting edge Boston FM radio station WBCN and began exploring his interest in blues and rhythm and blues music, giving himself the nickname "the Wolfa Goofa"
