Douglass started his musical career in the late 1960s with his band The Virtues, which later turned into the acid-rock group Country Weather. He came in contact with Van Morrison and Jefferson Airplane spin-off band Hot Tuna and ended up touring with both of them.
After his departure from Hot Tuna, Douglass founded the group Terry & the Pirates. He got in contact with Steve Miller Band bassist Lonnie Turner in 1977 and co-wrote the song "Jungle Love" as well as playing on Miller's tenth studio album, Book of Dreams. In 2002, "Jungle Love" became the theme song for CBS-TV sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond, opening the program for seasons 7-9.
Douglass was a member of the band John Cipollina's Raven and appeared on 1980 album "Raven". He joined The Greg Kihn Band in 1983 and played on the bands hit single "Jeopardy". After recording Kihnspiracy, Kihntagious, and Citizen Kihn, Douglass left the group and toured with Tom Fogerty and Eddie Money.
Douglass has lived in the San Diego area since 1994, where he remains active as a touring guitarist (Big Brother and the Holding Company, the Electric Flag), a studio player, and a music instructor. He also leads his own four-piece group, the Greg Douglass Band, playing concerts, clubs, corporate events. He also spends about a month each year touring Europe, primarily the UK.
