The Troggs frontman Reg Presley has died a year after retiring from music to concentrate on battling lung cancer. The "Wild Thing" rocker, 71, died at his home in Andover, England on Monday.

Presley's daughter Karen tells WENN, "He passed away peacefully at home, and myself, my brother and our mother were with him. We're absolutely heartbroken."

Presley was diagnosed with cancer at the beginning of 2012 and announced his retirement in a post on The Troggs' official website. He wrote, "As you all know I was taken ill whilst doing a gig in Germany in December. During my stay in hospital tests showed that in fact I have lung cancer. I am receiving chemotherapy treatment and at the moment not feeling too bad.

"However, I've 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."
