Fieger’s hit song in 1979 called “Sharona” was a track about one of Fieger’s real-life girlfriends.
In one of Doug Fieger’s last interviews in January, the singer seemed to be at peace when he spoke to the Detroit News:
“Everybody knows they’re going sooner or later. 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.”
