Eddie Martinez and his GMII

October 16, 2012

Eddie Martinez and his GMII were recently featured in Oregon Home magazine. For those of you who don’t know, Eddie was the go-to guy in NYC in the 80′s and 90′s, and he recorded and played live with Robert Palmer for years. The Monkeys are big fans of Eddie’s playing and tone.

He has also played with Meat Loaf and Run-DMC; toured with Blondie; accompanied Mick Jagger at Live Aid, and performed on movie soundtracks including Pretty Woman and Pretty in Pink. 

These days he writes advertising jingles and regularly performs with his Eddie Martinez Band in and around Portland, OR (his adopted hometown) using his custom Purple/White GMII Head and 2×12.
