Doug Fieger of The Knack dead at 57. RIP

Doug Fieger, the lead singer, guitarist, and song-writer for The Knack, a 1970's ephemeral rock band with the famous hit "My Sharona," died earlier today. The song, about an older man lusting after a younger woman, is one the catchiest and funnest songs from that era. Here are some of the lyrics:

Come a little closer huh, ah will ya huh.
Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona.
Keeping it a mystery gets to me
Running down the length of my thighs, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up. Such a dirty mind.
Always get it up for the touch of the younger kind

That song has been featured in just about every dance and large social event featuring music that the werewolf has attended since middle school. The positive memories of jumping and hopping around to it are abundant. What a great legacy for Mr. Fieger. RIP, good sir.
