The Recording Academy® Statement Re: George Marino
June 4, 2012
GRAMMY® winner George Marino was a dynamic influence in his craft as a studio engineer. Working with Sterling Sound mastering studios for more than four decades, he collaborated on a wide range of musical projects including some of rock’s most classic albums such as AC/DC’s Highway to Hell, Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet, [TESLA's Mechanical Resonance], Guns N’ Roses Appetite for Destruction, and Metallica’s self-titled disc. He also mastered some of the annual GRAMMY Nominee CDs and recently garnered an Album Of The Year GRAMMY for his work on Arcade Fire’s Suburbs. Marino’s passion, talent, and genuine love of music was a true gift, and the music industry has suffered a tremendous loss. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, friends and all those who had the distinct privilege of working with him.
