My Sharona

By Steve Evans

In the news, U.S. President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace prize today. Bully for him.

More importantly, I heard My Sharona by The Knack on the radio this afternoon and a flood of 30-year-old memories washed across my troubled mind.

There is nostalgia. And then there is The Knack.

A quartet of misogynistic bastards they may have been, but those sonsabitches crafted a perfect power-pop song with the greatest guitar solo -- I said, the greatest guitar solo -- laid down by any band in 30 years.


My Sharona will tell you everything you need to know about rock-n-roll, post-Beatles.

Scroll to track 58 on my jukebox and goose the volume. Or check this video:

Yeah. That's right.
