My place: Eddie Martinez

2012OctNov MyPlaceOne wall of this contemporary condo shimmers with precious-metal glitz. The framed gold and platinum albums represent just a fraction of the music-industry awards presented to Eddie Martinez. “I think it’s around 25,” says the guitarist, who played with Robert Palmer, 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. He also writes advertising jingles (i.e., a Pepsi commercial featuring Britney Spears that aired during the Super Bowl) and regularly performs with his Eddie Martinez Band. Four years ago, he bought a Portland condo and moved in, only to move out again for a place “just down the street.”

“Long story short,” he says. “I fell in love.” With another place? “With a woman.” Now the condo serves as his semi-detached music man cave.

MAN STUFF: A small round dining table, glass-top desk and chic leather sofa furnish the living room, but taking center stage are his collection of “rock-god guitars,” speakers previously owned by Prince and a custom-design speaker cabinet in regal purple and white with “crushed platinum” plastic details, by 3 Monkeys Amps. “This is my furniture, for all intents and purposes.”

FEMININE TOUCH: Leopard-print and green throw pillows
on the black leather sofa were gifts from his girlfriend, Sarah Mensah, COO of the Portland Trail Blazers, as was the wood-and-white-leather chair. “I love that chair, how it’s some old school and some new school. Love that juxtaposition.”

HOME BASE: Until age 9, he grew up in suburban Queens, N.Y., with a backyard for bare feet in the summer and snowmen in the winter. A sudden change in family finances meant a move to a fifth-floor walk-up in the Bronx. For the middle child of the seven Martinez kids, “it was a cultural shift.”

MEMENTOS: He holds dear his family photographs from that time and “the first LP I ever bought: the Beatles’ Revolver.”

ON THE FRIDGE: Guitar and martini-glass magnets make a cool combo.

FAMILY MATTERS: His brother moved to the Portland area decades earlier, and most of his family followed, including his now 93-year-old mother. His daughter, Mia, is an attorney in New York City. Mensah’s son from a previous marriage is “like my son,” says Martinez. “All that plus a couple of dogs makes up our family.”
