Doug Fieger, the lead singer of the rock band The Knack, has died after a battle with cancer, his brother, the prominent Southfield attorney Geoffrey Fieger, confirmed today.
He was 57.
Fieger sang lead vocals on the 1979 hit "My Sharona," which held the No. 1 spot for six weeks.
I was lucky enough to play with him a few times over the years, mostly for fun and even then he was very serious about his music. Doug was a great man who helped a lot of people in his life. He put up an incredible struggle that came to an end around 6am this morning.
