Tony Martin has said that 'Martin' was a stage surname that all members of a band he was in in his younger days adopted. He has continued to use it professionally since.

In 2000, he was offered by Tobias Sammet to be Avantasia's guest vocalist on the debut album "The Metal Opera", but Martin was not interested and turned it down.
