Manchester blues legend Victor Brox (born in Droylsden, 1940) is a musical virtuoso and as well as playing keyboards and singing he plays brass and guitar. He is one of Britains greatest ever blues vocalists ranking alongside the likes of Chris Youlden, Joe Cocker and Steve Marriot at their best. This has been endorsed by Jimi Hendrix who was a great fan of Victor jamming and playing with him and the Ainsley Dunbar Retaliation on many occasions. Victor studied under a variety of blues pioneers such as Big Bill Broonzy, Bo Diddley, Brownie McGhee, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Screaming Jay Hawkins, and played with Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Big Bill Bronzy, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Gillian of Deep Purple, Charlie Mingus, Noel Redding of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Memphis Slim, Dr. John, Keith Moon of The Who, Alexis Korner, Bill Coleman, Lord David Sutch, Tete Montelieu, T.T.Swanston, John Mayall, Graham Bond, Country Joe McDonald, Keith Moon, Marzetta Watts and Nico. In the late 1960s, he was the frontman of Ainsley Dunbar's Retaliation and also appeared as member of many blues outfits or as guest on several blues albums (vocals and sometimes keyboards). They released three albums: â€˜Retaliationâ€™, â€˜Doctor Dunbarâ€™s Prescriptionâ€™ and â€˜To mum from Aynsley and the boyâ€™sâ€™. He created the Victor Brox Blues Train (which he originally formed way back in the 60s with Annette his wife), still exists and re-surfaces regularly. In 1970 Victor performed as Caiaphas on the original recording of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webbers 'Jesus Christ Superstar'. Victor frequently appeared alongside his highly talented wife Annette Brox (vocals & percussion) and continues the tradition by singing with his daughters Kyla and Anna. Kyla now has her own highly rated blues band. Sam and Buffy two other childrens are musicians too. This amazing performer has appeared alongside many of the big names of blues as well as in his own right and has a string of recordings across the musical spectrum.
