LONDON - Reg Presley, lead singer of British 1960s rock band The
Troggs, has died aged 71, a friend said late Monday.

Presley, best known for hits including "Wild Thing" and "Love Is
All Around," had announced a year ago that he was battling
cancer and would retire from the band.

Veteran music journalist Keith Altham, a close friend of
Presley's, wrote on his Facebook page that the singer had died
"surrounded by family and friends" on Monday at his home in
Andover, southeast England.

"My dear old pal Reg Presley of The Troggs died today," he

"He was one very real person in a sometimes very unreal world.
Our thoughts are with his wife Brenda and the the family and
those legion of fans who loved his music and his band. I will
miss him hugely."

He added that the singer had suffered a number of recent strokes
as well as being diagnosed with cancer.

Presley's daughter Karen told the music website WENN: "He passed
away peacefully at home and myself, my brother and our mother
were with him. Were absolutely heartbroken."

The singer had announced his retirement in January 2012 after he
was taken ill during a gig in Germany the previous month.

"During my stay in hospital tests showed that in fact I have
lung cancer," he wrote in a letter posted on the band's website.

"I am receiving chemotherapy treatment and at the moment not
feeling too bad.

"However Ive had to call time on The Troggs and retire. I would
like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the cards and
calls and for your love, loyalty and support over the years."

The Troggs' manager did not immediately respond when contacted
by AFP.
