Reg Presley, 1941-2013
Dave Laing, Guardian, The, 5 February 2013
THE TROGGS WERE not among the most technically proficient of British pop groups of the 1960s, but they generated great affection among audiences and disc jockeys alike. The naivety of their sound, their songs and, above all, the singing of Reg Presley, who has died of lung cancer aged 71, made records such as 'I Can't Control Myself' and 'With a Girl Like You' into big international hits.
