About Me

Vinny Martell, lead guitarist of Vanilla Fudge, and U.S. Navy Veteran, has received wide acclaim and worldwide recognition for the musicianship and originality that have etched out his place in the annals of rock history.

His riff in the Vanilla Fudge chart topper, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” is ranked the number four heaviest guitar riff of all time by Guitar Magazine. The Vanilla Fudge’s symphonic rock remake of this Supremes’ hit placed them at number six on the Billboard Charts in the U.S.A. and at number two on the charts in England, second only to The Beatles. Martell’s original, “Thoughts,” a B-side to “Take Me for a Little While,” went to number six on Italy’s Rock Charts.

Led Zeppelin opened for them… Jimi Hendrix and Vanilla Fudge toured together. The great Jimi himself once told Vinny to contact him if The Fudge ever broke up -- the Hendrix-Martell Experience, perhaps. Jefferson Airplane, Cream, Janis Joplin, The Doors, B.B. King and more, all graced the stage with them…

In the twenty-first century, Vinny has reunited with Vanilla Fudge and has toured the USA, playing to packed houses. His discography includes three solo CD’s, the latest a Tribute to Jimi Hendrix, as well as a new soon-to-be-released Vanilla Fudge tribute to Led Zeppelin.

The Vince Martell Live Group, Vinny’s solo project, has played to sold-out audiences in the tri-state area, including a recent stint with Blue Oyster Cult at The Chance Theatre in Poughkeepsie, New York…

Vinny Martell hosts two weekly radio shows out of Philadelphia on WNJC 1360AM -- “Vinny Martell Rocks America.” (Tuesdays at 6:00 PM)

With Peg Pearl as his co-host, Vinny keeps on rockin’ America and the world with originals and classic rock remakes, promoting established musicians and new up-and-coming artists, as well as airing great music that is changing the face of AM radio!!!

His new show, “Perspectives” (Mondays at 11:00 PM ‘til the midnight hour), deals with topics relating to life beyond this earthly dimension and NDE's (Near Death Experiences) through the eyes of a wide spectrum of famous artists, actors and musicians.

On October 15, 2006, Vanilla Fudge was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame along with other prominent musical figures, such as George Gershwin, Harry Chapin, Perry Como, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Joan Jett, Peter Criss of Kiss, Twisted Sister and Billy Joel, to name a few.

Vinny is currently at work on a new CD of originals and unique remakes of rock classics. Watch for Vanilla Fudge and Vinny Martell Live -- coming to get ya!
