The Knack Frontman Dies
Doug Fieger, frontman with The Knack, died on Sunday (February 14) from cancer at the age of 57.
He’d been battling lung and brain cancer for several years, and had two brain tumours removed in 2006.
Fieger formed The Knack in Los Angeles 1978, and the group quickly became a staple of Sunset Strip rock clubs. A year later he co-wrote and sang lead vocals on the band’s biggest hit My Sharona.
Fieger is the second member of the famed pop/rock band to die from cancer. Three years ago, drummer Bruce Gary succumbed.
