R.I.P. Reg Presley

Reg Presley (born Reginald Maurice Ball)

12th June 1941 – 4th February 2013

what a loss… he will be dearly missed, a true icon of the 1960s. i love almost every one of the troggs songs, and also regs early solo stuff (those three 45s released around 1970; hear one of them below!).

the troggs most famous hit ever was a cover version, but their original songs are not to be underestimated. they are amoung the groups i have the most 45s of, so they definitely have a special place in my music-loving heart.
