By 1972, Kihn had moved to San Francisco and started working his way
into the music scene. The Greg Kihn Band released their first
album in 1976.

The Greg Kihn band toured heavily in the early 80's, opening for bands
like Journey, the Rolling Stones, and the Grateful Dead. Another

short time, before starting his solo career in 1987.
As the years have rolled on, the Greg Kihn Band continued
producing new material and touring, often with a different line up.
