What ever happened to Greg Kihn?

I was driving home tonight and I heard a classic song on the radio… “The Breakup Song (They Don’t Write ‘Em)” (1981). And it made me wonder, what ever happened to Greg Kihn?

I only knew two songs he sang, “The Breakup Song (They Don’t Write ‘Em)” (1981) and “Jeopardy” (1983) {Video}. Or more I remember the videos of the songs when MTV played video all day.

So when I got home, I Googled Greg Kihn and here is what I found:

Greg Kihn (born July 10, 1949) is an American rock musician, radio personality and novelist. Which wold make him 61 years old!!

Greg Kihn is the front man for The Greg Kihn Band, which released several singles and albums that made the charts in the early 1980s. The best known songs by the Greg Kihn Band are “The Breakup Song (They Don’t Write ‘Em)” (1981) and 1983’s #2 smash “Jeopardy“. The latter was spoofed by “Weird Al” Yankovic as “I Lost on Jeopardy” on Yankovic’s album Weird Al Yankovic in 3-D.

Kihn currently is the morning DJ at San Jose, California classic rock radio station KUFX-FM (promotional name 98.5 KFOX). As part of Dial Global Radio Networks, he syndicates a show on many Classic Rock radio stations nationwide. He also does the late night show on classic rock radio station WKGO (FM) (promotional name go106.com) in Cumberland, Maryland.

Since 2001, The Greg Kihn Band has been one of the opening acts at the annual Kihncert, which is organized by KFOX.

Greg’s son Ry Kihn (named for guitarist Ry Cooder) sometimes plays with his father’s band, as well as a band of his own, Big Fun USA. He also has a daughter, who once sang Christmas carols on his radio show.

Greg Kihn was inducted into the San Jose Rock Hall of Fame in 2007.
