Reg King (5 February 1945 – 8 October 2010) was an English singer and songwriter, most famous for being the solo and lead singer with The Boys and The Action. He died of cancer, aged 65, in October 2010.
A rather succinct and matter-of-fact quotation from Wikipedia. What it fails to impress upon the reader though is the depth of talent that Reg possessed. Reg King was arguable the most gifted blue-eyed soul singer to ever take to the stage. Along with the rest of The Action, they were among the VERY few bands who could improve upon the soul classics that inspired them.
