Wild Thing Singer Reg Presley Dies

(Classic Rock) Troggs frontman Reg Presley has died aged 71, a year after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

The 60s icon, best remembered for hit singles Wild Thing and Love Is All Around, lost his health battle after suffering a series of strokes.

Presley, real name Reginald Bell, announced his retirement in January 2012 after falling ill during a concert in Germany, leading to his diagnosis.

He said at the time: "I am receiving chemotherapy treatment and at the moment not feeling too bad. However, I've had to call time on the Troggs and retire. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the cards and calls, and for your love, loyalty and support over the years. I shall miss you all." more on this story
