Reg Presley, lead singer of The Troggs, died last night. Remember "Wild Thing"? Here's a pic of our Rock band from the day (your host on the drums). With Dennis Giguere on rhythm & vocals, Dave Wadsworth on lead & vocals, and Tim Pickel on bass & vocals, we used to do terrible things to it:

 "Wild Thing, you make my Kong King, you make my pong ping, you make my dong ding, you make my onion ring ..."

We named our band "The Shandoes."  We wanted a name that had absolutely no relativity or meaning.  It worked.

Later, we changed the band's name to "Seymour's Fat Lady," which was full of relativity and meaning, but may have been partly responsible for insuring our obscurity.
 RIP, Reg.
