Get the Knack
When I think of power pop, I immediately think of The Knack—”My Sharona” is arguably the example of what a power pop song should be, and it’s still one of my favorites.
Knack guitarist/vocalist Doug Fieger died today at the age of 57 after years of battling cancer. It was reported today in The Detroit News. Fieger told the paper in January: “I’ve had 10 great lives. And I expect to have some more. I don’t feel cheated in any way, shape or form.”
And well he shouldn’t.
