Rare full Antion and Elandra interview

Rare full Antion and Elandra interview

Elandra:  I have a big passion for what I believe is possible when it comes to love and ageless living, and so I love it when people say, “You radiate so much light and love, how do you do it?” Or “What are the secrets to your marriage longevity, how do you manage to stay together?” Or, “How do you keep yourselves in such great shape, so fit and healthy, especially for your age?” I love talking about all this. It’s really my life’s passion and purpose! Perhaps that’s enough to keep me going....

Breathe! Newsletter 10/22

Love! Breathe! Our daughter Pritam (wrote on September 2), "My father Antion Vikram Singh Meredith, the love of my mother’s life for 49 years, died two months ago. There’s been record-setting rain the last few days where my mother lives (still winter there.) Auckland has been in lockdown for several weeks already with (hopefully only) two more to go. If not for her neighbor and friend Bryce, my mother would be totally physically isolated for this apparently endless period of time. Thanks to...

Thoughts from Antion’s loved ones

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AgfNaQMZzc "I am amazed at how I'm taken aback when I either see a picture of Antion or hear his music My heart feels his love so deeply as though he's right here. That just happened again when seeing the New Lynn Gurdwara ceremony. What a blesser Antion remains!!" - Elandra Meredith I now consider myself a bit of a veteran at the whole death thing, and I have formed some opinions about how people describe death as “passed away” and “left us.” Although I quite...

Daughter’s thoughts

Daughter’s thoughts

This letter is from my daughter. You may, if you wish, leave tribute, thoughts, prayers and alohas on my daughter's Facebook post, and on Antion's Facebook Page.My father, Antion Vikram Singh Meredith, has decided to make his transition. My mother has asked me to write this as I know a little bit about this sort of thing. I was by my husband’s side as he died of prostate cancer, my hand on his heart. If we should all die with the peace and love and certainty that my husband knew, we would be...

Meeting Joe Pass

Meeting Joe Pass

In this flurry of information about an insanely short two- week period, even I, who lived through it all, am having a hard time believing that all this happened in such a short period. Well, here’s something else that happened. I accidentally ran into my biggest idol of the time.   In the 60s, there was a daily talk show, syndicated nationally, hosted by a standup comedian known as Woody Woodbury, who had been known for risqué material, which was daring for the time but extremely tame by...

The Great Malacca Hike

The Great Malacca Hike

The Great Malacca Hike 2014 Report #4   Things moved forward today. Late last night I got my ticket for Melbourne. I leave Sunday evening.   This morning at 6am I was on the phone to Ottawa, Canada, talking to the Oz embassy about my visa. The guy was very helpful. He said that it was basically a free visa. the $20 was just for using the web site and that I DO have a visa for Oz. Still, I'm going to print out the confirmation, just in case. At 6:30 am i was out the door for my first hike all...

49 Incredible Years

49 Incredible Years

Our 49th Wedding Anniversary...   You might be wondering what it has been like to be married to this woman for 49 years. I can tell you it has been nothing short of amazing. Dare I say, better than you can possibly imagine.     When we first met and fell in love, even though my love was very deep, I was concerned that Elandra was no more than a party girl in the mode of the 60s/70s.   I need not have worried. She is, and always has been, a devoted spiritual seeker and activist for all human...

The Scotch – Part 2

The Scotch – Part 2

After we played our first set, it was time for Jimi to do his thing. Chas introduced him and he took the stage with Brian, Roger Sutton on bass and Clive Thacker on drums. And James Marshall Hendrix playing for the first time on a James Marshall amp, a pleasant association that would endure for the rest of Jimi’s short life. For sure he played Hey Joe, as I already said, I remember the other songs - maybe three more – as all being blues based. They would have had to have been, just because of...

The Scotch – Part 1

The Scotch – Part 1

On that fateful night, exactly 50 years ago, I left home at around 7:45 pm. Climbing into my 63 Yellow VW Beetle (Bug), I drove the 15 miles to the West End of London in about half an hour. Often Brian Auger (see pic) and I would drive together to gigs like this but that night we drove separately. As I look back now, it didn’t feel to me like this would be a night that would change – well, maybe not EVERYTHING – but would change music history. For me it was going to be just another gig,...
