In Memoriam: Doug Feiger (1952-2010)

Doug Feiger, founder, songwriter and lead singer of The Knack, died of cancer today at age 57. I had the extreme pleasure of seeing The Knack perform several times in small clubs while I was a college student in LA during the 1980s. Get the Knack, their first album, was for some time the fasting selling album of all time, featuring such hits as "My Sharona" (see below) and "Good Girls Don't." Feiger's passing is very sad news for anyone who loves New Wave and Power Pop.
