KEVORKIAN NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE BAND

Celebrity runs in the family of Dr. Jack Kevorkian's lawyer, Michigan gubernatorial candidate Geoffrey Fieger, whose brother Doug is lead singer of the Knack.

After a day of politicking at the state Democratic convention, Fieger introduced the band -- best known for its 1979 pop hit "My Sharonna" -- at a concert Saturday night.

Doug Fieger, who used to be in a band with his brother, wouldn't let the attorney join in.

"We draw the line very particularly with people who can and can't sing," Doug Fieger joked before the show.

The crowd included Fieger's most famous client, Kevorkian, who Fieger has defended against assisted suicide charges.

"I'd prefer big band music, but let's see what this is like," the 70-year-old Kevorkian said before the show, during which he was seen plugging his ears while an opening act performed and later left midway through the Knack's first song.
