When I heard that Doug Fieger passed away on Feb 14, 2010, I got really sad. I met him back in 2006 when I covered the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp for the show and he seemed like a really nice guy. Of all the people at that thing, he was my favorite. Most people wrote off The Knack as a one hit wonder or a novelty band or something like that. Go back and listen to that first Knack record and you will hear some of the best pop songs ever put to record. Like a lot of people do when a musician they like dies, I put on some of Doug's music and it was so good, I started seeking out some other stuff from The Knack. I am glad I did, because there are some great records out there.
