Over deze activiteit

The Troggs Biography Who can forget "Wild Thing"? The Troggs have always been remembered for this 60’s anthem, but it is just one of their many worldwide hits: "With A Girl Like You", "I Can't Control Myself", "Anyway That You Want Me", "Give It To Me”, "Love Is All Around" & "Night of the Long Grass". They all followed in rapid succession to give The Troggs world-wide acclaim. Dubbed by many as the "first British punk band", they have continued playing in their own uncompromising style of good, basic rock music. Never strangers to controversy, many of their records were considered by the "powers that be", too suggestive for the masses, and they consequently banned them. How anybody could judge Reg Presley's tongue-in-cheek delivery to be dangerous to the morals of the young is hard to believe. The Troggs feature Chris Allen (stepping in the shoes of Reg Presley), Pete Lucas on bass (since 1974), John W Doyle (on guitar for Chris Britton), and Darren Bond on drums (son of the original drummer, Ronnie Bond). Their popularity has never waned, and they are still in great demand both in the UK and the rest of Europe. They regularly headline festivals attracting thousands of fans. Their appeal holds no age barriers, fans ranging from the stalwarts, who have supported them throughout the years, to the many new fans from younger generations. Now, in 2018, The Troggs are very much a "cult" band. Polygram in the USA and UK released a 52 track CD box set, and Castle Music Pictures and Polygram co-operated to produce a video spanning twenty-six years of great Troggs music. Following a series of strokes and a diagnoses of lung cancer at the end of 2011, Reg Presley, regretfully, decided to retire from performing and gave the band his blessing to carry on with new vocalist, Chris Allen. Being a veteran of 60’s music, Chris has performed with The Animals, The Commitments, Denny Laine Band (Wings/Moody Blues), Alan Silson, Spencer Davis, Hawkes Band (Ex- Smokie & Tremeloes) & Lt. Pigeon. On 4th February 2013, Reg peacefully passed away at his home surrounded by his family.
