R.I.P Doug Fieger

15 Feb

August 21, 1952 – February 14, 2010

 

The Knack frontman Doug Fieger died today at his Woodland Hills, CA home after his battle with both brain and lung cancer. He was only 57 years old. For those of you who are not familiar with The Knack’s, they are the one that wrote and sung the 1979  song “My Sharona”. 

Fun Fact:
1.) The song  “My Sharona” was actually a real person named Sharona Alperin whom Doug Fieger met when he was only 17. She was featured in the cover of the album shown below: 

 

2.) Were is Sharona Alperin now? She is now a real-estate agent in L.A. 

3.) Many claimed that “My Sharona” drove the stake through the heart of the disco era. 

My condolences and prayers goes out to his family and friends.
