Welcome to the first of many installments of Tony Martin Tuesday! In the year 2015, the first and third Tuesday of each month will be known as TONY MARTIN TUESDAY. Why Tony Martin? Well, because he’s the fucking Cat and because Tony Martin fucking rules. This week we’re jamming an awesome, facemelting live version of “Heaven and Hell” from 1989.
There are very few people, who I feel can really pull of Dio era Sabbath songs and still manage to capture that fire and that passion. Ok, matter of fact, just two that I know of. One being Jorn Lande and the other being The Cat. The Cat really pulls this shit off massively and somewhat makes it his own jam which I love. This footage was taken from the 1989 Headless Cross tour. I totally remember this tour being cancelled when I was a kid living in New Orleans. I was so pissed it never came to me but thanks to the interwebs I can now relive it in all of it’s kick ass, facemelting glory!
Long Live The Cat indeed!
