On the latest edition of The Ultimate Metallica Show, we dedicated the first hour completely to the life and legacy of Jonny Z. We pulled out eight songs from Metallica's recent show in Florida that celebrated both Jon and Marsha Zazula and we also shared a beautiful memory he shared with us a couple of years ago (which you can hear in the Instagram post below).

AI Generated Art: Metallica Edition
