Metallica’s James Hetfield And Lars Ulrich Pay Tribute To Late Megaforce Records Co-Founder Marsha Zazula

Metallica’s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich have paid tribute to Megaforce Records co-founder Marsha Zazula, who recently passed away at the age of 68. Marsha and her husband Jon “Jonny Z” Zazula co-founded Megaforce in 1982 and they were credited with helping Metallica launch their career.

Hetfield said the following:

“Marsha Z is the Metal Matriarch of the East Coast. She was our mother when I had none. She made great sacrifices for Metallica to grow. Thank you Marsha. Love and positive energy to the Zazula family.

— James Hetfield”

Ulrich also shared his own tribute:

“Thank you Marsha for making it happen…

For supporting us, for encouraging us, for advising us, for sheltering us, for feeding us, and most importantly for cheering us on and along with your husband Jonny, believing in the possibilities of how a gang of misfits and outsiders like ourselves could connect with a larger and likeminded audience…

You were an incredibly selfless matriarch and we’ll be forever grateful for the impact you had on our lives.

Rest In Peace.”
