|Troggs Lead Singer Passes|
The singer for The Troggs died of cancer. One hit wonder, Wild Thing. [foxnews.com...]
Not quite, Lawman.......
Reg also wrote, 'Love Is All Around', an international hit for Wet Wet Wet.
The Troggs also had a hit with, 'With A Girl Like You'.
An excellent band!
You are right tbear. Sorry about that.
Yeah, I agree, it was a great band.
I'm sorry to hear of his passing.
A real shame - he was a nice guy and really into UFO's and odd things like that happening around Warminster and Andover. The songs were just classics - another part of my ill-spent youth gone.
When I was a lad growing up in Andover I used to walk my dog past the Shopfitting Factory in Shepherds Springs Lane where the Troggs practiced most week nights. It was great to sit outside and listen. This was of course before they became famous.
Reg Ball (his real name) seemed like a nice person and it is a shame to lose another of the great pop / rock icons of the 60s/70s. He was wrong about the crop circles though they aren't caused by aliens they are caused by time travellers.
It's all demographics, innit? Two, three decades back, all the big-name oldtime movie stars were dropping like flies. They couldn't help it; they were all born around 1900-1925 so it was their time. And now it's the rock musicians' time. In a couple more decades it will be...

...in the form of bioelectromagnetic energy.
And you're both right, it's time traveling aliens. See, the thing is, earthlings have caught on to the UFOs plus have advanced enough now to be able to record evidence since the advent of cameras and such. Work has become more time consuming. They are now born of women like everyone else. Do their work (as observers), and leave. Eventually.
Used to be aeons ago one could just land in someone's front yard, or at the mouth of a (troglodyte's) cave depending on how far you want to go back. If they talked about it to anyone they would have been classified as "unstable". But now, oh boy, everyone has a camcorder in their pocket.
Word in the ether says Reg Ball just composed a new song called Aum Gone Wild. Heaven will be rockin' this weekend. Collective Soul will be opening for him but they have to do it via remote from earth of course. They will sing their first hit single, Shine (to encourage Reg), which came from their debut album Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid. It's one of their seven number one hits.
Zalyshar has the earth rights to Aum Gone Wild. You can check them out on Youtube [youtube.com...] Period -- That's Adam sitting in The Garden playing it as a beatbox rhythm on a didgeridoo and Eve is shimmering in the foreground. Poor lad didn't have a chance. I think it was a conspiracy but I can't prove it.
