RIP Doug Fieger
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:17:36 PM »

Doug Fieger, The Knack lead singer who co-wrote the new-wave band's biggest hit, "My Sharona," has died. He was 57.

Fieger died Sunday at his Woodland Hills, Calif., home after a battle with cancer.

"Our hearts are broken, we will miss you, Doug," the band wrote on its website.

A year after forming The Knack, Fieger co-wrote and sang lead vocals on the group's 1979 international smash "My Sharona." The riff-heavy tune, from the album Get the Knack, was inspired by Fieger's then-girlfriend, Sharona Alperin, and spent six weeks atop the Billboard pop chart.
