The Troggs Quotes
I was given that name. It wasn't my name. All of a sudden they told me to read this article in the paper and I couldn't find it. I phoned them back, this is our manager and A&R guy and I said I can't find it. They told me where and I went What? You've changed my name to Presley! I said why couldn't you have gotten a less well known name like Crosby or Sinatra? (laughs)
I did form a little band that did a show in Andover (England). I was fifteen years old and it was in the skiffle days. We didn't do anything. I more or less said that's it. Then I started working with a guy who was a lead guitarist, he played a great guitar. I was a bricklayer and he was a bricklayer as well. He said "Let's get a band together." I thought well, yeah. He said "can you play bass?" I said "I play a bit of rhythm guitar." He said "Well pick up a bass and start learning that." And I did.
