RIP Doug Fieger, 57, leader of The Knack

RIP Doug Fieger, leader of 70s pop band The Knack, who died of cancer.  The Knack wrote classic power pop tunes combining a gritty edge with a Beatlesque gloss, including classics My Sharona and Good Girls Don’t.

Like many teens learning to play guitar in the 70s, I spent far too many hours torturing my parents and neighbors with the riff from My Sharona (along with, of course, the obligatory Smoke on the Water).

RIP, Doug.

    You were, of course, the first person I thought of when I heard of his passing. Sad.
