Doug Fieger, the lead singer of the rock band The Knack, has died at the age of 57, after a battle with cancer, his brother the prominent Southfield attorney Geoffrey Fieger, confirmed on Sunday 14th February.
Fieger sang lead vocals on The Knack's 1979 hit "My Sharona," which held the No. 1 spot for six weeks.
He had attended Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary School in Oak Park and Oak Park High School, but of late
Fieger had been living in Woodland Hills, Calif. and was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
"Everybody knows they're going sooner or later," Fieger told Detroit News columnist Neal Rubin in a January interview. "I don't know any better than anyone else when I'm going.
"I've had 10 great lives. And I expect to have some more. I don't feel cheated in any way, shape or form."
