Former BLACK SABBATH singer Tony Martin has issued the following update:

"There is a Cozy Powell [late RAINBOW, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, BLACK SABBATH, WHITESNAKE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN drummer] memorial year coming up. Can you believe it's been 10 years since he died? I've been asked to contribute in various ways. There are various magazines and books being released next year commenting on the life of Cozy to which I was asked to contribute and was glad to participate, and more recently I have hooked up with the guitar player from the days I spent in COZY POWELL'S HAMMER, namely Mario Parga, on a song that is far removed from the rock scene. Actually, Mario is an accomplished Spanish speaker and Spanish-style flamenco player and we've put a track together that should be released soon. It's been fantastic hooking up with Mario again and we may well do more stuff. I'll not say more at this point but I'm looking forward to the posibilities."

Martin's latest solo album, "Scream", was released in November 2005 via MTM Music. The CD features legendary drummer Cozy Powell (BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW, WHITESNAKE) on "Raising Hell" as well as songwriting contributions by another SABBATH member, Geoff Nicholls.
