Martyn LeNoble was born on 14th April 1969 in the Netherlands city of Vlaardingen; he is of Dutch ethnicity. We do not have any specific information regarding his family background and education. However, we know that during his teenage days Martyn fell in love with punk rock music, and joined a band when he was only fourteen years old. When it comes to his body characteristics, he is 5ft 10ins (177cm) tall, and has blue eyes and blonde hair.
Moving to the US – Music Career
Martyn moved to Los Angeles in the USA in 1989, shortly after which he started playing bass in a punk rock band called Thelonious Monster. After picking up some experience, he decided to form his band, and eventually in 1992, Martyn teamed up with musicians Perry Farrell, Peter DiStefano and Stephen Perkins to form the rock band Porno for Pyros. This band attracted a lot of attention, and suddenly they found themselves in the spotlight. They released two studio albums ‘Porno for Pyros’ in 1993 and ‘Good God’s Urge’ in 1996, then split up in 1998.

During his time in the US Martyn became quite a famous and influential musician, and is still going strong. He has worked with some famous artists, such as Scott Weiland, Daniel Lanois, Josh Klinghoffer and Tom Morello, with his latest work being co-operation with Mark Lanegan, a studio album called ‘Gargoyle’ recorded for ‘Heavenly Records’ in 2017, and which attracted some excellent reviews.
However, not only that Martyn is a rock star, but he also composes music for movies and TV shows and he is quite successful.
There has not been a lot of controversy surrounding him throughout his career. There was this one isolated incident where it was rumored that he physically assaulted a paparazzo.
Love life and Marriage
Martyn started dating actress Christina Applegate in January 2008, and proposed to her on the ‘beach’ in Palm Springs in 2010. Christina gave birth to their daughter Sadie Grace LeNoble in 2011 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital – they tied the knot in February 2013, in a private ceremony with only family and friends, at their home in Los Angeles.
Christina’s dress was designed by Maria Lucia Hohan, and their rings by Neil Lane. This is their second marriage. No news headlines or scandals have surfaced about this couple and this leads us to believe that they are a functional family going for the long run.
Christina was born on 25 January 1971, in Hollywood, to Nancy Priddy and Robert William Applegate.
She first appeared on TV in the movie “Jaws of Satan” when she was only seven years old, after which she played young Grace Kelly in the biographical movie “Grace Kelly” in 1983. In 1987 she had perhaps her most memorable role, as Kelly Bundy in the TV show “Married with Children”, becoming part of this show for ten seasons through 1997.
She appeared in many other movies, and even hosted “Saturday Night Live”. Her first big movie role was in “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead” in 1991. In 2004, she appeared on Broadway playing the title role in a revival of the musical “Sweet Charity”.
She was a part of the “Up All Night” cast during 20011-12, and she was reputedly making $125,000 per episode, contributing significantly to her estimated net worth of over $20 million.
It is also known that Christina underwent a double mastectomy in 2008 because of breast cancer, through an inherited gene – her mother is also a survivor. Carolina has since raised funds for cancer research, and to promote awareness of the insidious disease. Currently, she lives in Los Angeles, California with her family.
There is no information regarding Martyn’s net worth and salary. When it comes to his social media accounts, he has public profiles on Instagram and Twitter on which he is quite active. On his Twitter, he likes to keep his fans updated on what he is up to when it comes to his music, but he is also very vocal when it comes to criticizing current president Donald Trump and his policies. It is also evident that he is a big nature lover, judging by his Instagram account on which he likes to post wildlife content.
