Reg Presley in Belgium - 2005

In 2005, we featured Reg Presley with a special friend he'd made in Andover. Phill Mayer was in a terrible accident last summer and had both legs amputated after he was crushed while exploring the derelict Rothsay Hotel.

To help Phill on the long road to recovery, The Troggs took him to Antwerp for their recent Golden Years rock concert. Also on stage - Slade, Alvin Stardust, Mungo Jerry and other classic bands. Our reporter Keith Malone tagged along too!
