Personal Quote:

I thought Wet Wet Wet's version [of "Love is All Around"] was great. When I heard it, they sent me a tape to see what I thought of it. I put a cup of tea to my mouth and took a swig, and it came on with those big heavy chords (we did it gently) and I spit tea all over the room. And all of a sudden he started singing and I thought "wow!" [interview on BBC 6 Music in March 2010]


Presley's Basingstoke (UK) funeral was attended by family, friends and pop celebrities including, Noddy Holder (Slade), Bruce Welch (The Shadows) and singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, writer of Presley's band The Troggs' 1966 smash hit "Wild Thing". See more »
