This is Trog, who was in Beeston this morning entertaining me and the shoppers with his excellent renditions of well known songs, together with one or two of his own compositions.
Trog is not his real name, that's David Thornton. Trog was a nickname from his schooldays. I'm not sure if it was a kind name or not, as the only Trog I have heard of is the horror film of the early 70's about this caveman that was captured by scientists! There is a musical connection of course in the form of the Troggs; hence my title.
David's performance is one of four in the Square that takes place every Saturday morning through August. Next week another band will take to the stage with their own brand of music.
