TONY MARTIN BIOGRAPHY
Tony Martin (born April 19, 1957) was the seventh and final vocalist for the legendary rock band Black Sabbath before the eventual reunion of their original lineup. He was in the band on and off for a ten-year span between 1987 and 1997, recording five albums: The Eternal Idol (1987), Headless Cross (1989), Tyr (1990), Cross Purposes (1994), Cross Purposes Live and Forbidden (1995). He was dismissed from the band in 1991, to accommodate the reunion of the Mob Rules lineup: Tony Iommi, Vinny Appice, Geezer Butler and Ronnie James Dio. He returned to the band in 1993, and left once again sometime in 1996 or 1997, while the band was on hiatus.TONY MARTIN GENRES
Martin has since been involved in many solo projects, yet his most memorable gig remains his time as frontman of Sabbath, a gig he was originally somewhat reluctant to pursue.
His latest work is his solo album Scream LP in 2005.
Alternatively, another joker named Tony Martin captains the 'Get This' flagship, adrift in the Austereo ocean. Accompanied by the notorious scurvy dog, Ed "Sandwich" Kavalee, as well as their trusty bosun Richard "Teabag" Marsland, this ribald crew's vessel has had many comedic stowaways aboard - notably semi-regular voyages towards lands Kafkaesque with Fleet Commander Greg Fleet.
