Reg Presley

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Reg Presley (born Reginald Maurice Ball, 12 June 1941) is an English singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer with prominent 1960s rock and roll band The Troggs, whose biggest hit was "Wild Thing". He was born in Andover, Hampshire.

His most famous composition is "Love Is All Around". When this song was covered by Wet Wet Wet in 1994, it stayed at #1 in the UK Singles Chart for fifteen weeks.

In 1990 Presley began to develop an interest in the paranormal, in particular crop circles. He used the royalties from the Wet Wet Wet cover of "Love Is All Around" to fund his research into the area and outlined his findings in a book, Wild Things They Don't Tell Us, which was published in October 2002.[1]
