Sad news, as reported by the Associated Press:

Doug Fieger, the 57-year-old leader of The Knack died Sunday. Valentine’s Day.  According to the story, he died at his Woodland Hills home after battling cancer.

Music fans might recall The Knack’s biggest hit, “My Sharona.” The Knack produced the kind of fun, bouncy music that could provide the soundtrack to any teenager’s summer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Fieger’s family and friends.
