Back in 1979, The Knack had an insanely successful debut album that went platinum in less that two weeks, even as disco dominated music. Everyone was humming “My Sharona,” a song written by Doug Fieger about a real woman.
Today the song has the advantage(?) of rhyming with “corona,” which has many people playing with COVID-19-themed parodies.
Yesterday (March 25) guitarist Berton Averre finally relented. But rather than singing a re-write himself (Fieger died of cancer in 2010), he’s posted an instructional video of how to do the solo properly. This will help other parodists get it right.
All royalties derived from this video will be donated to Music Health Alliance.
