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.
