Manny Martinez graduated from Lodi High School in 1971, and played drums in a number of Lodi, NJ bands. As a veteran of the local scene, Manny eventually met Glenn Danzig and started rehearsing with him in his project, The Misfits. After a few rehearsals, Manny completed the band's lineup by introducing Danzig to his friend Jerry Only. Manny's jazzy style of drum playing was recorded only on the first single, Cough/Cool. By the end of 1977, and after only a few live shows, Manny left the band.
