Brox has worked with Clapton, Hendrix, Blackmore, Gillan and many more. He sang the role of the high priest Caiaphas in the original version of the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar and wrote the song Warning, the cover of which closes Black Sabbath’s debut album.
Lump’s obituary is published by the Oldham Evening Chronicle, infamously noting that Brox was “one of the most underrated legends of the blues scene, a hero who has never been properly celebrated.” Also, for example, Hendrix and Tina Turner called him their favorite white bluesman.
The death of the powerful old man was confirmed on the social network by his daughter Kayla, who also became a blues artist. Kayla writes that her father has always been her inspiration and role model for her.
Victor Brox was born in 1941 in Greater Manchester. He played trombone in the school orchestra, simultaneously mastering various brass, keyboards, and guitar. He played with his band Victor Brox Blues Train and in The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation as vocalist and organist—the Warning theme played for the first time in his performance.
