To begin with, Kyle grew up in Walnut Creek, California, with his brothers Mitchell and Matthew. At the age of twelve he began playing his first instrument, the flute, and soon after the saxophone, and an old nylon string guitar. During his appearance on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” on the 15th November 2006, Kyle Gass said he was the youngest graduate of the Juilliard School of Music with a classical guitar studies degree at the age of thirteen.
While Gass began his music career at a young age, he also started his acting career early. His first role he played in a 7Up commercial, while still at high school. After matriculating from Las Lomas High School in 1978, Kyle enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). There he met the actor Tim Robbins, who recruited him into the Actor’s Gang. Kyle graduated from UCLA in 1986. In 1984, a sixteen year-old boy named Jack Black was one of the new recruits to the Actor’s Gang; Kyle didn’t like Jack at first, but the two finally surpassed their differences and became good friends. Kyle taught Jack to play the guitar, and the two quickly formed a group they called Tenacious D. After a few performances they produced six short comedy films for the channel HBO, which can be found on the first DVD Tenacious D “The Complete Masterworks”. In 2001, they released their first self-titled album, from which the song “Tribute” was a big hit.
