Victor Briggs

Real Name:
Victor Harvey Briggs III
Profile:
Victor Harvey Briggs was born in Feltham outside of London on February 14, 1945. At the age of 17, he was playing professionally. He had been a member of numerous groups during the 60's and spent a year touring with Dusty Springfield as well as playing on many of her records during 1965. As a member of Eric Burdon & The Animals (1966-1969), in addition to sharing lead guitar chores, he was the group's music director and arranger. His association with Eric Burdon & the Animals made him a key player in British psychedelia. Jimi Hendrix named Briggs as one of his favorite guitarists, alongside Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck.

In the 70's, Briggs became a Sikh and took the name Vikram Singh Khalsa, making several albums of Indian music and was the first non-Indian to perform kirtan at Harimandir Sahib.

He currently goes by the name Antion Meredith and plays Hawaiian chant music.
