R.I.P. George Marino

Salutations, forgive me for not posting this directly in the Mastering forum (or if this is a duplicate), however I feel that this is applicable news to all considering his reach and history...

Lauded mastering engineer George Marino has passed. His historic catalog speaks for itself.

Ahh fark.

This has been a totally sh*t year for this stuff.

Great mastering engineer and a great guy to boot.

I used to look forward to sitting with Geo. and prying the good war stories out of him when I was lucky enough to have a record that could afford him. I always sat in the very back chair in his room at Sterling and occasionally would try to guess aloud what he was doing...

I was usually profoundly wrong about SOMETHING or other.

Then he would kindly tell me as much in very polite terms... Which would give me a golden opportunity to openly revel in the depth of my auditory ineptitude.

I think it really did use to crack him up how much I enjoyed being utterly mistaken.

Something that more than a few mastering guys I have attended with either DO NOT find funny, think is disruptive... or, for whatever reason, don't seem to be very comfortable with.

Ahh me. He will be missed.

God bless and Godspeed Georgie!

Very sad.
I was just informed that George battled with cancer. Such a shame.
Extremely nice guy and an amazing catalog of work.
I did have the pleasure of working with him a few years ago.

+1 On that. Well said.

Very sad news...

My condolences to his friends and family. A truly legendary Mastering Engineer, the music world is a better place because of him, and worse now without him.

George mastered the Jerry Cantrell Degradation trip vol 1 and 2 I co produced and engineered in 2002. I was a big fan of his work and was very honored that he was mastering it. I found George to be not only one of the nicest people I have known in this business, his skill was amazing. In my almost 30 years in this business, this was truly one of the biggest highlights of my career.
Thank you George and God Bless You!

Our Beloved George


A friend just sent me this link and I must share that your words/sentiments about our beloved George, my husband, has moved me to respond.

Yes, he was a great mastering engineer. He also was an incredible husband, father, grandfather and friend to all. He was everything to everyone. Never selfish. No ego. Always made time to teach or chat or... Just the sweetest coolest 'mensch'.

He would have been humbled by the turnout at his wake, Mass and burial and, by your words.

Yes, he had a great sense of humor. He had to, he was with me for 44 years!

George was diagnosed with lung cancer on Halloween, 2011. Eight months later, on June 4, 2012, we lost him. He fought a valiant fight. The cancer was contained...we thought. But some cancerous cells escaped chemo and radiation and went to his liver.

What you saw, felt and met, was the real deal. He didn't have a bad word to say about anyone. Didn't have a bad bone in his body, but insidious cancer came a-calling without mercy.

He would be embarrassed by all the accolades you posted. Truly embarrassed. Many of our friends had no idea who and what George was or did. They learned at the wake and, were stunned to know. That was George...

Again, thank you for your kind words and memories. They are helping me during this very difficult time...without my George. Diane Warren said that now they angels will sound better...

Bless you all and stay healthy.
