    Default Tony Martin's Headless Cross

    "May I introduce the new 2012 band, Tony Martin's Headless Cross...Danny Needham, Geoff Nicholls, Dario Mollo, Myself, and Magnus Rosen. We have one appearance planned this year at the end of July on the east coast of England. More details to follow."

    I did see this too! Good for Tony! Glad to see him back in the game. By that I mean with a band and everything. This was one of the first things that was on my news feed and it was one of the best things to come home from work to. Very exciting news indeed!

    If they come to Seattle, I will do everything I can to see them. From all of the recent (2006-present) live footage I've seen, he sounds amazing.

    That is quite a lineup. Hope they can make a real tour out of it. Would like to hear Martin & Mollo play some of The Cage songs as well.

    I want to see this band come to Stockholm, Sweden some day :D I am dying to hear the Martin-era Sabbath tracks live, apart from that I will admit not being a super-fan of his projects, apart from the "Scream" album which is amazing (save "Kids of today"). It's great that Geoff still plays with Tony as well, he is such a talented keyboardist.

    @EDTRADER: Is it definite and set in stone that this has collapsed for a second time.. Well that sucks, I was hoping to just see some footage of the line-up perform. I was hoping they would have some success and do a little more on the side, maybe even resulting in a new album with everyone in the vein of Sabbath Martin material, but I guess that the idea for this project just isn't strong enough. Shame, it was a kickass line-up.

    Well even if that one show has been canceled that doesn't mean they aren't looking for a replacement show. Since they already got together to do this, I'd imagine they won't let one promoter fuck it all up...

    Or I hope so anyways! Tony's been through enough already he deserves some good news for a change!

    I agree, Tony Martin said recently that he wants to tour and go out live. But he's not doing is for 5 bucks a show and Ham n Cheeze like the scream tour.

    Wow, good for him! Likewise, it's equally as sad. Too bad the general music listening public is just as apt to kicking Martin around as Iommi was. Good luck to him.

    I managed to interview Tony last night after the UK One off solo show announcement.

    The cancelled UK show is explained, as well as the choice of the Birmingham venue (and lots of other TM things) hopefully it will be of interest to you:

    Would any of you guys be able to tell me how I might secure opportunity to interview Tony Martin, or Geoff Nicholls before/after the show? I will likely be there as I am a Birmingham local, and have just taken up writing for a brand new website dedicated to the music of the west-Midlands area - both historical and currently. I'd love to talk to Geoff about Quarts, both of them about Sabbath, and what they have been doing more recently. It would be a major coup for me to get something like this, and I'd happily do all I can to promote the show via my various connections in Birmingham.

    I would love to see a DVD or a least a Live album from the Birmingham show in July.

    Unfortunately that seems as likely as me being the next Black Sabbath singer. The commercial interest for such a DVD or album would be close to none.
    Sorry to be a party pooper, but I think this is kind of sad. I love the work Tony Martin did with Sabbath, I love Scream and I really like some of the other stuff he's done with various musicians. And what credit does he get?
    Playing one show for 600 people is hardly a huge gig. Being interviewed by fans on various websites (no offense to you guys doing these interviews) is hardly the media attention that sells tickets or CDs.
    I agree with hipster doofus. Good luck to TM and his band, but it still is kind of sad.

    I would even buy it, if it were a Live album download from I Tunes or Amazon, I think other Tony Martin fans would also buy it, if they know about it.
