Reg Presley, lead singer of the British ’60s hitmakers the Troggs, has announced a retirement from music due to his being diagnosed with cancer.
In a statement issued on the Troggs’ official website, Reg said “As you all know I was taken ill whilst doing a gig in Germany in December. During my stay in hospital tests showed that in fact I have lung cancer. I am receiving chemotherapy treatment and at the moment not feeling too bad.” He has previously suffered two strokes; one in 2010 and another just last year. via britrockaholic.tumblr.com
