Sunday night's show was dedicated to the one and only Jon Zazula.

Without Jonny Z, who knows what heavy metal and rock and roll would look like today? To honor him, I shared a little bit of audio from a Cameo video that Jonny Z sent me and some friends a couple of years ago; in it, he shares an incredible memory about what it was like dreaming about the future of Metallica with Lars Ulrich. In celebration of that history, we opened the night with "Metal Militia," the closing track on Kill 'Em All.

With his wife, Marsha, Jonny Z released Kill 'Em All on Megaforce Records back in 1983, so how could we not kick off the show with that?!

The rest of the night showcased many great moments in the life of Metallica: A Soundgarden cover at a tribute concert for Chris Cornell, a demo from James Hetfield's riff tape for "Damage, Inc.", and an unforgettable performance from back in 2011 at Yankee Stadium in New York City. We also cranked up a cover of "Whiplash" from Motörhead and enjoyed Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan doing his best take on "Nothing Else Matters."
