Former Black Sabbath singer Tony Martin made a recent comment on Ultimate Guitar’s Facebook post and claimed that his era was the most exhausted era of the band.
Here is what Ultimate Guitar wrote:
“Today marks the 30th anniversary of Black Sabbath’s often overlooked “Headless Cross” album. In its honor, we’ll be going more into the Tony Martin era of Sabbath.”
Tony Martin commented:
“Thanks guys! It was a pleasure and an honour to be part of the band’s history.. Most bands have gone through changes … pun intended 🙂 But Sabbath was one that did more than most. 🙂 The era that I was involved in was after the band had been mostly exhausted, financially credible and territorially.
There had already been 5 singers associated with the band BEFORE I even got there! It was a low point and when I joined them it really was a challenge! What we were able to do was capture territories that were not normally strong for Sabbath.
We opened up Russia and Asia and Europe where Sabbs had never been before.. the eastern block was opening and South America and Korea … We worked hard to get the name back up and did some great works… Headless Cross was significant in that we had Cozy Powell and that was an honor too…
We did lift the band again … to the point where it was set for a reunion with the original members which is the only other place they could go! Thanks for honoring this era… It was important in the band’s history.”
