The British Presley Remembered.
Tuesday 5th February 2013..
I have put a post on hold just so I could do this one on a great British Icon of music.
Yes the Brits did have a Presley,, and equally as good in my eyes, personal choice, so no need to get on one if you disagree. Our guy had no frills and was a very down to earth guy, his music should be in my CyKlopps site, but his interest in Crop Circles deserve to be on this one.
My small tribute to a man of music, which I loved most of and was large contributor to the British music scene of the 60’s and 70’s,, Most popular and commonly known song would be ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Love is All Around’. but if you are a follower of this band then you will also know they did many other good quality songs of the day to which some are still popular today.
Reg Presley (born Reginald Maurice Ball; 12 June 1941 – 4 February 2013) was an English singer songwriter. He was best known as the lead singer with prominent 1960s band The Troggs, whose best known hit was “Wild Thing“, though their only UK number one single was the follow-up “With a Girl Like You“.
His most famous composition is “Love Is All Around“. Wet Wet Wet‘s 1994 cover stayed at No. 1 in the UK singles charts for fifteen weeks. Presley used his royalties from that cover to fund his research into crop circles and outlined his findings in a book, Wild Things They Don’t Tell Us, published in October 2002.
Reg Presley appears as a character in Steve Erickson‘s novel These Dreams of You (2012).
