Little is known about Greg’s childhood and growing up on the whole. He has a younger brother, Raymond Pettibon, who is an artist.

He started the band Panic in 1976, but soon the group assumed the name Black Flag. Greg became known for his devotion to music, rehearsing several hours per day, but that often upset other members of the band. Because of Greg’s habit, his Black Flag saw several changes in line-up over the years, and eventually reached success with Greg being the only consistent member and leader of the group. Until their fallout in 1986, Black Flag released six studio albums, including “Damaged”, “My War” (1984), “Slip It In” (1984), and “In My Head, among others, the sales of which only increased Greg’s net worth. The group reunited in 2003 for a benefit concert, and then again in 2013, to record the seventh album “What The”. All albums were released through Greg’s own record label, called SST, which in the beginning was a small business through which he sold electronics equipment, called Solid State Tuners. His label managed to sign artists such as Minutemen, Meat Puppets, Sonic Youth, and Soundgarden of the recently deceased Chris Cornell. This also increased Greg’s net worth.

Apart from Black Flag, Greg has played with several other bands, including Gone, October Fraction, Mojack and many others, which also added to his wealth. Moreover, Greg also ventured out on his own, releasing a number of albums beginning in 1993 until the present day. His first solo release was the LP “Getting Even” (1993), and over the years released such successful recording as “Let It Burn” (1994), “Goof Off Experts” (2008), “We Are Amused” (2011), and “Fearless Leaders” (2013), among others, which contributed.

Regarding his personal life, Greg was married to Marina; before their divorce, the couple had two children. Greg was a vegetarian for a number of years, and is currently a vegan.

Gregory Regis Ginn Quotes

#Quote
1There's not much music I'll listen to if it doesn't have pretty heavy swing. Rhythm is so important. Punk rock would have more power and feeling if it had swing.
2The REM and Nirvana successes don't mean much to me except as a potential distraction for bands who want to cash in on the trend. Don't try to sound like someone else. REM and Nirvana don't sound like anyone else.
3Punk rock really came out of New York as a philosophy before the groups were ever recorded. I had a kind-of intellectual interest in the idea of creating a new scene that could be a grassroots thing.
4There are several books out on punk history, but I haven't read any of them. I was there.
