There are two artists named Peter Griffin:
1) The main character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.
2) A German artist whose first release was the 7" single "I Hate the Music" in 1977, followed by "I'm in the Race" in 1978. In 1979, he released "Spiderman" as his third single. Shortly thereafter, the 12" version was released and the song became a major club hit that year.
He had two other club hits between 1980-1981. The songs were "Step By Step", which was originally released on Electrola Records of Germany. The song gained popularity as an import, and the fledgling Moby Dick Records picked it up for U.S. release, issuing a remixed version. The following year Electrola issued "Inside Out", another up-tempo number. No American company opted to license it, yet it still received good club exposure. After his music career, he was very successful with several restaurants in Baden-Baden, Achern, Prague, and San Diego. Peter Griffin died on 17 January 2007 in Baden-Baden, Germany at the age of 67.
