NO but my mates dad was the singer in a little band you might have heard of called Black Sabbath*




* at their absolute nadir

My ex's grandad, who she called dad, used to claim that the Black Sabbath lads hung around with him before they became successful and he used to play with them a little. I've Googled his name next to Black Sabbath but found nothing. He's dead now.

In Manchester, nearly everyone else I've been in a band with, their dad played guitar in some band at some point. None of any note, mind, though I did work with a guy whose dad was in Herman's Hermits through the 60s.

Growing up back home, I didn't know anybody whose parents were musical, or even anyone my age who played guitar or drums. A few girls at school, who had vaguely aspirational parents, played some piano or violin but I got a lot of strange looks when I told people I'd taken up the bass.

This may be why the only notable band to come from anywhere close to my birthplace is It Bites. The above mentioned Black Sabbath did play a few of their early gigs round there, however.

If you're on about Tony Martin I personally find him far less irritating than Dio whose cock rock squawk was really no fit for Sabbath.

I saw them in Bristol in the mid 90s during Tony Martin's tenure, except that he was AWOL that particular night (along with one or two others on that tour - I think the official line was illness of some description, but there were rumours flying around that it was due to a massive argument with the rest of the band, either that or he was too busy murdering a burglar in his farmhouse) and his place was taken by a very briefly returning Ian Gillan (who apparently filled in with something like one day's notice).  That concert also led to Bristol council imposing volume limits on all live shows due to how fucking loud it was.

My mum is Gillian Anderson, but this is more of a Picture Box thing, isn't it?
