Black Sabbath Singer Learned Music From A Vacuum Cleaner
Tony Martin, singer with Black Sabbath on five albums "Eternal Idol", "Headless Cross", "TYR", "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, Gibson.com.
