R.I.P. Doug Fieger

Just over 30 years ago, the song My Sharona pounded the summer airwaves and charts to become a #1 song for 6 weeks and subsequently, the #1 song of the year 1979. A poll of the class of ’79 for a high school reunion I did also named it their #1 song. The tune, written about an intense relationship with an ex-girlfriend, briefly re-charted in 1994 after appearing in the movie Reality Bites.
Yesterday, Doug Fieger, the composer of My Sharona and lead vocalist of the L.A. – based band The Knack, became the second founding member of that group to pass away, after drummer Bruce Gary in 2006. Both succumbed to cancer and Fieger, whose brother is attorney Geoffrey Fieger (defender of Dr. Jack Kevorkian) was only 57.
