, singer with Black Sabbath
on five albums "Eternal Idol
", "Headless Cross
", "Cross Purposes
" and "Forbidden
" recently spoke to Gibson.com
about his life in the music business.
Well known for his interest in creating new sounds, Martin says he learned a lot from him mom's Hoover:
"The most famous of my musical explorations was harmonizing with my mother's Hoover! I learned a lot about note interaction just by using the constant drone note from the vacuum.
As a young guitar trader, however, he showed no real flair: "My original first pride was a Gibson 335 semi, which I am gutted to say I sold for 2 sterling when I was 14. Clearly had no idea what I was holding!
Asked if he thinks his music lends itself to a rock opera treatment, he said: "I am talking to an old band called Black Widow about such an idea!
Thanks for the report to Andrew Vaughan
