R.I.P. Doug Fieger

February 15, 2010 / Posted by:
Doug Fieger, the lead singer of The Knack, passed away yesterday in Los Angeles at the age of 57. Doug had been battling lung and brain cancer for the past six years. Doug’s brother Geoffrey confirmed his death.

“Muh muh muh my Sharona” is probably playing on a loop in your head right now, so I don’t have to tell you that The Knack is best known for that song. “My Sharona” was #1 in 1979, and became a hit all over again in the 90s thanks to Winona Ryder and Janeane Garofalo dancing to it in a gas station. But it’s near and dear to my bong thanks to Cheech Marin’s version: Maaaaaah Scrotum!!

And I didn’t know this until recently, but Sharona is a real person! A real person who is now selling real estate in Los Angeles. You must visit her “about” page. It’s a shame Doug never wrote a follow-up to My Sharona called My Escrowa.

Rest in peace, Doug.
