The Rock and Roll Geek Show

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.
My friend Joe Klein called me a few days ago and the subject of Doug Fieger came up and he reminded me that he produced Doug's old band The Sunset Bombers. I thought it might be fun to have Joe on the show and tell some Doug Fieger stories and we could listen to some tunes together.
What you get on tonite's show is just that. 2 guys paying tribute to one of rock's most under appreciated talents. We play a lot to songs, tell some great stories and listen to some stories from Doug Fieger himself, pulled from the RnR Geek archives. I hope this show turns you on to some of Doug's music and just how great of a guy he was.
