Biography

There are three artists with the name “Tony Martin:” A rock singer; an Australian performer; and an American big-band singer and actor.

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.

Martin has since been involved in many solo projects, yet his most memorable gig remains his time as front man of Black Sabbath.

His latest work is his solo album Scream LP in 2005.

2. Tony Martin was a co-host of the Australian Triple M radio show ‘Get This’ with Ed Kavalee and Richard Marsland. The show was axed in late 2007, despite high ratings.

3. Tony Martin (born December 25, 1912) is an American actor and traditional pop singer.

Martin was born Alvin Morris in Oakland, California to Jewish immigrants from Poland. He received a soprano saxophone as a gift from his grandmother at ten. In his grammar school glee club, he became an instrumentalist and a boy soprano singer.

    The Black Sabbath vocalist doesn't seem to have as many plays, so if you disagree with the photo, vote for another one.

    When Death Calls is a great Martin-era Sabbath track! Good singer, but he was the least of the best.

    Who is that in the picture? that's not the classic traditional pop crooner of the 40's. This sucks. ¬¬ I wish last.fm would fix these mistakes.

    My five favorite black Sabbath albums are The eternal idol, Headless cross, Tyr, Cross purposes and Forbidden. XD Tony Martin is so so so so UNDERRATED!!!!!!!! when I think of that and see all those Ozzy fans I get sad, very sad. It is true that Ozzy has charisma and unique voice and everything but that's all cause he is acting crazy trying to impress people who need court jester to amuse them, sadly he succeed.

    Администратор глючит по ходу раз в число похохожих исполнителей поместил ретро-исполнителей. Ажминистратор- хватит глупость показывать свою. Убери это и поставь нужных исполнителей!!
