Troy Martin is an American Rocky Horror Elder. His first exposure to Rocky Horror was in 1974 in a record store in Shrewsbury, NJ, where he discovered the recently released The Rocky Horror Show - Original Roxy Cast LP in a record bin. In July 1978, he heard Tim Curry singing "Sweet Transvestite" for the first time on the Dr. Demento Show broadcast on KMET 94.7 FM. Intrigued by the music, he saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show when it opened at the United Artists Cinema 4 - Tyler Mall in Riverside, CA on February 2, 1979. He quickly became a regular participant as a Transylvanian with a loosely organized group of fans known as The Riverside Rockys. In August 1979, he became one of the first Rocky Horror fans to regularly play The Criminologist. In November 1979, along with Vid Kadavre, Julie Ford, and Richard Gifford, he founded Erotic Nightmares, one the first regular, full-time Rocky Horror performing groups on the West Coast. He also became a member of The Tiffany Troupe at the legendary Tiffany Theater in West Hollywood, CA, performing there from 1979 to 1983. He was one of the first Rocky Horror fans to see Shock Treatment at a private pre-release screening at 20th Century Fox. Although retired from performing regularly, he remains an active member of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Official Fan Club, attends Rocky Horror performances and events, and is an avid collector of Rocky Horror memorabilia. He maintains a website dedicated to his personal Rocky Horror experiences, and is a major contributor to The Rocky Horror Wiki.
