Megaforce Records auction


Sep 9 2022 • 35 mins

Backstage Auction's "The Jon and Marsha Zazula Private Collection Auction" runs through September 11, 2022. It's an auction officially endorsed by the Zazula estate, auctioning off the most personal items of Megaforce Records owners (Jon and Marsha Zazula) symbolizing their storied record business career. There are first pressings like Metallica's Kill 'em All debut and interesting items with crazy stories behind them (the keys to Metallica's stolen rental van). Also bands who served the heavy metal underground from the beginning, like Raven, Venom and Anthrax.  However, it's not all heavy metal. The Zazula's helped revamp the careers of Ace Frehely and Blue Cheer, and advanced the music of artists like the bluesy soul of Warren Haynes and the poppy Bif Naked.  As with all auctions that center on record companies, there's lots to be found for the music collector and music memorabilia maven. Listen to the podcast and hear Backstage Auctions' owner Jacques van Gool explain auction items in detail.   Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
