Here’s a flashback to my first year in radio: Doug Fieger, via dead at 57:
Fieger formed The Knack in Los Angeles 1978, and the group quickly became a staple of Sunset Strip rock clubs. A year later he co-wrote and sang lead vocals on “My Sharona.”
Fieger said the song, with its pounding drums and exuberant vocals, was inspired by a girlfriend of four years.
Here’s one for old times’ sake:
RIP, Doug Fieger.
