Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Musician
    (July 10, 1950- )
    Frontman for The Greg Kihn Band
    Recorded 'The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)' and 'Jeopardy'
    Wrote four novels and released 'Carved In Rock: Short Stories By Musicians' (2003) written by him and guest authors Ray Manzarek, Pete Townshend, Joan Jett and Ray Davies
    He is a two hit wonder.
    He is a DJ in San Jose where his radio station puts on an annual concert (called 'Kihncert') and always has his band as the opening act.
    He has a pet praying mantis named Zatoichi.
    He appeared on NBC's 'Hit Me Baby One More Time,' said he always 'plays to win' and was 'pissed off' when Thelma Houston beat him.
    'Jeopardy' reached #2 on Billboard's Singles chart (1983).
    The song was parodied by 'Weird' Al as 'I Lost On Jeopardy,' with original 'Jeopardy' TV alum Art Fleming and Don Pardo.
    He named his son Ry (a guitarist in his own right whom he calls 'next of Kihn') after his favorite guitarist, Ry Cooder.
    His album titles are puns on his name; 'Rockihnroll,' 'Kihntinued,' 'Kihnspiracy,' 'Kihntagious' and 'Citizen Kihn.'
    He felt he let his charity and Green Day down (singing their 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams') during the 'Hit Me Baby' taping, but once he heard Houston he stated, 'That woman can sing rings around me!'
