Lobster Interviews Greg Kihn at 69 Green St. Studio


November 2, 2011

Greg Kihn and Paul “Lobster” Wells are old friends. When Greg was first starting out in the ’70s on Matthew Kaufman’s Bezerkeley Records, our neighborhood, friendly local Crustacean DJ championed his music. For the “Jeopardy” video, Paul’s company, Flow Communications, was an Executive Producer of the ground breaking video, and can be seen in the video in a cameo role, throwing rice at the “Married couple” as they get into the limo outside the church. Greg came by Flow Communications at 69 Green Street in San Francisco for this in-depth interview: Kenny Wardell was there to take pictures, and threw in a couple of questions himself.  Click to listen to the interview below the picture.

  1. I met a woman at my garage sale a few weeks ago, and she went right to our vinyl bin. Discovered that she was one of the few Bay Area folks that came to hear Greg Kihn and Tom Petty.

    Paul and I could not understand why such a small handful of folks showed up.

    Ahead of the times I suppose.

  2. Wyatt’s referring to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers first Bay Area show at the Keystone Palo Alto on February 15th, 1977. The Greg Kihn band opened for TP that night, although in an interview for Lobster’s Rock Box in 2002, Greg, bless his rockin’ heart, remember it the other way around.
