Troy Keyes: back in the swing with VMP

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 8 October 1971

TROY KEYES had a very successful single in 1967, 'Love Explosions', and has been conspicuous by his absence ever since. "I spent a year with ABC", explained Troy, "and then I quit. I got too frustrated and I think I was heading towards a breakdown. So, I concentrated on writing songs and getting myself ready to do things my own way. I worked hard and saved my money."
