Crazed Management LLCJonathan “Jonny Z” Zazula, whose claim to fame is being the person who first signed Metallica, is putting pen to paper to tell his story.

Heavy Tales: The Metal. The Music. The Madness. As Lived by Jon Zazula will arrive on October 29. The book is described as “not a typical rock ‘n’ roll book, but rather, a blue-collar success story.”

Zazula and his wife, Marsha, co-founded Megaforce records in 1982 and signed Metallica to their first record deal. The metal legends recorded their first two albums for Megaforce: 1983’s Kill ‘Em All and 1984’s Ride the Lightning.

Megaforce also released albums by Anthrax, Testament, Mercyful Fate, Living Color and Fozzy. Testament’s Chuck Billy wrote the book’s foreword.
