Former Black Sabbath Singer Surprised By Iommi Revelation

(Classic Rock) Former Black Sabbath singer Tony Martin believes the band don't have the guts to face up to internal disputes. He's revealed the first time he knew about Tony Iommi's criticisms of his near ten-year stint with the metal pioneers was when he was told about comments the guitarist made in his book.

But he remains proud of his time as replacement for Ozzy Osbourne and Ronnie James Dio � and remembers how his 1987 audition came as a surprise to him.

In his biography Iron Man, Iommi slates Martin for being "unprofessional" and having "no stage presence." The singer tells Uber Rock: "They never said anything to me. We could have fixed it. I said to them endlessly that if there was anything they wanted changed, done differently, just to say � and we could fix it.

"They didn't. They hadn't got the guts to, obviously."
