RIP Doug Fieger

Dan Epstein gives a nice epitaph at his blog, La Vie en Robe.

Unlike Dan, I really dug the power-pop of "My Sharona" when it first came out, due to the fact that it was a guitar based, Beatle-esque rock'n'roll song coming out of my AM radio. Of course, it got way over-played, but the Knack created super power-pop throughout their career and their first two albums are truly solid.

I hadn't even heard that Doug was ill, so this was a sad surprise to me.

Too many are leaving us too soon...
